General Shipping Services Ltd., was established in 2006 by a very experienced team which has been in the shipping industry for the past 30 years. The company was formed to serve a close circle of first-class Charterers, Traders, and Shippers by operating, time or voyage chartered vessels, both in the dry & wet sector. Their aim is to enable traders to sell their commodities, to enlarge their trading activities, and to improve their existing commercial relationships between industrialized countries and emerging markets by providing full coverage of geographical accessibility with efficient and affordable freight rates.

In recent years, we have expanded our expertise in line with our customers’ requirements for a broader capability within dry bulk / wet transport. We now can manage transportation requirements from Handysize up to Kamsarmax size shipments (70-80,000mt) in dry bulk vessels and from MRs to VLCCs tanker vessels respectively.

We make no distinction when it comes to areas of trade since we believe that our experience in transporting, from complex breakbulk to regular bulk commodities and from clean products to crude oil respectively, enables us to provide the correct solution to suit our client's needs, regardless of origin or destination.

Our Philosophy, Our Values

We believe that our commitment to long-term relationships and our organizational ability to adapt to our partners’ needs, has led to many mutually beneficial relationships and has helped us to grow and expand in the turbulent and ever-changing environment which is the bulk sea transport industry today. We operate owned and long-term charter vessels as well as vessels taken on for single trips only.
