Shipping Line / Agency

There are a number of specialist job types within a Shipping Line or Shipping Agency. Both types of company employ people in roles ranging from customer service to analyst and management positions. This is because both types of company will run all day-to-day aspects of a shipping operation.

Shipping Lines own and run their own vessels and have their own equipment, including cellular containers (cargo containers). A larger Shipping Line will generally have dedicated offices within a port, where all day-to-day operations will be run from. A smaller Shipping Line may not have their own offices, so they will nominate an agent to run their shipping operations for them. This type of agent is known as a Liner Agent or shipping agent and will run some ro-ro vessel/ship operations on a smaller Shipping Line’s behalf.

What kind of jobs are available within the Shipping Line and Shipping Agency industry? 

For practical reasons, workers in Shipping Line & Shipping Agency jobs will generally be based in offices at a port. Workers in these organizations may be employed across a range of technical, financial and administrative positions.
