Employee-owned Transmarine Navigation Corporation is a leading tramp ship agency in the United States.

Since 1938, market leaders have trusted Transmarine with countless wet, dry, and breakbulk port call operations. Our offices in the US Gulf, US West Coast, and Hawaii deliver value-creating agency service for the most prestigious firms in the shipping industry.

We take with seriousness and pride the trust that owners and charterers place in us to positively impact the safe operation of their highly valuable vessels and cargo operations.

Transmarine’s unique service model delivers value-creating agency service by placing experience and expertise aboard the vessel: our boarding agents are trained veterans with an equity stake in the firm. These agents are backed by highly experienced operations managers and senior management.

Transmarine’s clients form a roster of the world’s most prestigious and recognizable companies in bulk shipping, commodities, trading, grain houses, industrial conglomerates, national oil companies, cement makers, and electricity generation utilities – from all continents. Our coverage map includes every port on the US West Coast along with Texas, Louisiana, the lower Mississippi River, and Hawaii. We do not perform liner container work.

Transmarine is the longest active member of the BIMCO in the United States, and is active in industry associations and local harbor safety committees. We are certified by ASBA and have been awarded the FONASBA Quality Standard.
