Host Agency

Host has been in the ship agency business since 1923, and they’ve developed a strong reputation for offering REAL solutions and improving efficiency. As agents, they coordinate with many local and international parties for every ship they’re appointed, giving them a worldwide network of relationships throughout the maritime community.

REAL Solutions
Host Agency says, “Your goals are our goals.” By developing a relationship with each supply chain stakeholder, Host agents are aware of customer needs as they develop and change. During each port call, they serve as their customers’ eyes and ears, collecting and communicating data based on their goals and offering REAL solutions when needed. Whether that strategy is prompted by a sudden change in plans or unexpected weather, or if it’s a way they’ve found to make a customer’s port call more efficient, Host agents have the knowledge and experience, and they’re ready to help.
