McQuilling Brokerage Partners Asia Pte Ltd, was formed in 2004 with the merger between McQuilling Brokerage Partners, Inc. (USA) and Pacific Link Shipbrokers Pte Ltd to better serve our clients in the East. This collaboration has enhanced the company's ability to cover all aspects of the liquid bulk movement markets within the Far East region. Today, the McQuilling Brokerage group is a privately held firm specializing in the marine transportation of crude and petroleum products for a global client base. With vast commercial experience in the international tanker markets, we provide professional, reliable and personalized services to our clients from offices located globally.
We pride ourselves on a comprehensive global contact network, combined with an integrated information system, provides the basis for our market intelligence. Active participation in international marine forums ensures up-to-date knowledge of current industry issues as well as representation of client interests.
The Chartering Group represents an extensive collection of experience and international backgrounds. On average, brokers have well over ten years of commercial experience and many over twenty. Several languages are spoken fluently in the group. Many members of the Chartering Group have previous experience with oil companies, shipping companies or have seagoing backgrounds.
McQuilling is actively involved in filling tanker transportation requirements for the U.S. oil majors, independents, most national oil companies and international trading firms. We are also closely aligned with U.S. and international tanker owners and work to secure profitable business for them. We offer our clients support in spot or period chartering of vessels for the transportation of hydrocarbons and post-contract operations and communications related to vessel chartering. Concluding several contracts daily, the Chartering Group stays abreast of the rapidly changing global oil and tanker markets through a worldwide contact network and integrated information management system.
