Welcome to HC Shipping

Your specialists in dry cargo shipbroking. A heritage steeped in short sea dry cargo coastal trade, but an ever-increasing presence in the worldwide deep-sea shipping arenas. Our origins forged us; our progression will define us. Always on, always looking forward.

Our Origins

Established in 1997 in partnership with Global shipping giants Clarksons PLC by Mark Harrison FICS and Mark Collins MICS, H.C. Shipping & Chartering quickly rose to prominence as one of the foremost dry cargo shipbroking houses in Europe.

Continued growth and development followed over the intervening quarter-century before the company was taken over entirely by the Casper Group of companies in 2021. Becoming part and parcel of an all-encompassing shipping group, the access to group resources means we’re able to call on any department, at any time of day, to assist our clients with all or any maritime requirement they may have, above and beyond the chartering of a ship for their cargo.

With a rich heritage of collective shipping knowledge and experience, spread across two offices in the UK and The Netherlands, H.C. Shipping & Chartering continue to go from strength to strength.
