Sinoda is a ‘one-stop shop’ for all your shipping agency needs. A veteran in the Singapore shipping industry, Sinoda has provided quality services since 1992 to vessels ranging from tankers to VLCCs to bulk carriers. Now, with the opening of our hub agency department we provide agency services not only in Singapore but also throughout the region which includes ports in Malaysia and Indonesia.
More than 50,000 vessels pass through the Malacca/ Singapore Straits each year. Though many of these vessels are not scheduled to call into the port of Singapore, many owners and charterers find it convenient to carry out their crew changes, receive spares and stores and Cash to Master while passing through the Singapore Straits at slow speed at the pre-agreed RV position.
Singapore is also a convenient location for some owners for storage of large marine spares, propellers etc. with delivery carried out when their ships pass OPL Singapore.
Though the available anchorage space at OPL Singapore is limited, some owners/charterers find that with the high charter hire rate, an hour delay in-port can cost thousands of dollars and find OPL services enable them to conduct their day-to-day port call requirement without the need to enter into port water.
This removes the need for going through port entry formalities and offers benefits by way of quicker turnaround and cost savings on port dues, pilotage and other charges. Other owners may prefer to stay at OPL Singapore whilst awaiting orders.
Whichever the case may be, we at Sinoda can provide the services required in the most timely and cost-effective manner without compromising the safety of personnel, equipment and environment.
Our office is operational 24/7, 365 days a year. Please feel free to contact us with any enquiries.
We assure you of a competitive quote and excellent service.
