Cerrahgil's Agency division has developed over the years because of the need to service our owned and operated tonnage. Our corporation philosophy is that all our client's vessels should be looked after as if they were our own. During the 1990's there was a rapid expansion in the number of companies offering agency services in Turkey, however, few have the benefit of the experience of also being shipowners and therefore being aware of all the operator’s problems first hand.
Cerrahgil agency has had its own offices and personnel in all the major Turkish ports for over 20 years. In all these ports the group has acted as both a carrier and agent, which has enabled a wealth of experience to be built up for the benefit of our clients.
The Group has considerable experience in trading physical commodities into and out of Turkey including; grains, pulses, steel and fuel oil, and additionally acting as representative in Turkey for a wide variety of marine related suppliers and service companies.
On behalf of our principals we coordinate supplies through contact with local suppliers, in all major bunkering ports as well as while passing through Turkish Straits.
Smooth coordination of the entire bunkering process is guaranteed by our local staff.
