For shipowners and cargo interests, engaging John S. Connor as vessel agent is your assurance that our experienced staff will find the most expedient turnaround in port for virtually any type of commercial vessel – carrying both dry and liquid bulk cargoes. We specialize in bulk, break bulk, and husbandry services.
To assure effective coordination of vessels and cargo, we make sure that port visits are as brief as possible – to maximize the ship’s profitability. As the shipowner’s agent, we are your project manager and main contact for vessel port calls. Vessels are closely managed to ensure efficiency and compliance during their stay at their respective US East Coast port.
We work alongside U.S. government agencies including Customs & Border Protection, U.S. Department of Agriculture, and U.S. Coast Guard, preparing and distributing the necessary cargo documentation specific to each vessel.
Our team manages crew transfers seamlessly and work to ensure that customs documentation and waste declarations are arranged with port authorities. We also provide the owner with real-time updates and reports for the port call or cargo operation.
Our goal is to protect our customer’s interests – the most effective way for us to do that is to be on location.
Our offices cover all USEC ports directly with our own dedicated and professional steamship personnel. Additionally, we are a premier agent on the East Coast for offshore work, including subsea cabling and offshore wind-related operations.
