Our goal is to provide a focused and reliable service with our relationships built on trust. We aim to provide specialized service with focus on a value added performance thereby strengthening the operating efficiency of our customers.
Avalon Shipbroking was established in 1998 as an independent privately owned Shipbrokerage operating in the South African bulk market.
With strong roots in South Africa, where it is now the largest brokerage, an office was established in Antwerp, Belgium in 2006 with the view to strengthening our European footprint. Today Avalon has 6 brokers in Cape Town and 2 in Antwerp.
From early on, realising the need for detailed accurate information Avalon designed its own dynamic ships database through which up to 95 percent of the world handy, handymax, supermax and panamax fleet is tracked. With this we can at any time provide detailed updated tonnage lists through which our clients can evaluate market levels.
Avalon has direct access to all major Owner’s and ship operating companies contracting between 550 – 600 ships per year through both offices. On the cargo side the full spectrum of dry cargo is covered, including, but not limited to, chrome ore, manganese ore, iron ore, mineral sands, salt, sulphur, coal, petcoke and all types of grains and sugar and all base metals.
Avalon is a dynamic, energetic broking shop interested in long term partnerships.
Avalon has full indemnity protection via Lloyds of London
