Our Agency was established as the first private independent shipping agency in former Yugoslaviain mid August, 1989. We started our work in Koper and by end of 1992 we established the first branch office in Croatia in Rijeka and later on in Ploče, Split and Zadar. In Montenegro we do business through our office in Bar.
Capris Ltd. (Head office and all branch offices) has 28 employees at present and is a FONASBA and BIMCO member through local Association of Ship agents & Shipbrokers, as well as member (for more than 8 years) of ITIC Ltd (International Transport Intermediaries Club Limited London UK / www.ITIC-insure.com /) All our offices are equipped with latest computer technology and connected with the Head office in Koper, so all the information can be received and dispatched in real time.
From the very beginning, we have worked mainly with tankers and bulk carriers. In fact, the main reason for starting our activity in 1989 was the situation that had arisen from the separation of Slovenia from Yugoslavia. Since Slovenia was the only Federal state without own refinery, we started to import petroleum derivates from Italy and France using Petroleum Terminal in Koper where we still control a very significant part of the entire traffic having exclusive Agency Agreements with most world-wide petroleum Majors and Traders.
One of our main activities is related to agency assistance to bulk carriers discharging and loading bulk cargos (mostly coal, petcoke, grains and minerals). We would like to emphasize that, in the segment of bulk coal discharging and/or loading in Koper, Rijeka and Ploce, our market share is constantly increasing.
We provide various services to our clients shipowners, namely ship repair, conversions and ship building. Our qualified staff is able to address all customers’ requirements (crew change, spare parts procurement, etc.).
Our chartering department can offer competitive fixtures through our close collaboration with various stakeholders in tanker and bulk carrier market.
Besides work with cargo vessels, we have been collaborating with the cruising industry in East Adriatic for many years. We act as agents or subagents for Holland America Line, Venezia lines, Emilia-Romagna line, etc.
