About ACGI Shipping

If you are seeking a reliable agent that can provide you with a full range of cargo services look no further.  ACGI fulfills the agency requirements of our customers at levels that consistently exceed their expectations. 

ACGI Shipping achieves this through a network of Port Service Centers covering all major US and Canadian West coast ports, each staffed with operations personnel focused on keeping port costs to a minimum.  With an average of 15 years of experience our operators know what is required to achieve efficient and economical port calls.  Our operations teams are backed up by equally experienced and dedicated documentation teams.

We are one of the few agencies on the coast that can provide in-house Supercargo and Port Captaincy services.  Together with our Freight Forwarding and Cargo Logistics division, we provide the full range of cargo services to ensure safe handling and on-time delivery of your cargo.

ACGI Shipping is fully certified member of the Association of Ship Brokers and Agents (ASBA) and we are also a member of the Mulitport Ship Agency Network representing all ports on the West coast of Canada and the United States including Alaska and Hawaii.

Since 1920 we have been providing agency and cargo services on the West coast of North America. Originally focused on the Pacific Northwest we now have offices at each major US and Canadian West coast port. The roots of ACGI Shipping Inc. can be traced to three historic shipping companies, Anglo Canadian Shipping, Greer Shipping and International Shipping. In May of 2009 these three companies came together under the name of ACGI Shipping Inc.

Local Offices Work Together with Central Support

ACGI Shipping is headquartered at Vancouver, B.C. At this office you will find senior management, our centralized accounting department, and also our IT department. With a staff of 35 the Vancouver office provides support to all Port Service Centers.  

Our management system provides coastal consistency while also allowing each office to tailor their services to the unique needs of their customers and the port. Each office has a General Manager who is also part of the operations team and reports to senior management for operational and administrative support and review. 

Our Cargo Services divisions are also headquartered at our Vancouver office and include a full time Port Captain and a Supercargo on staff to meet the cargo supervision needs of our customers. We also offer a comprehensive freight forwarding and cargo logistics division that operates under the name of ACGI Cargo Logistics.   

To facilitate communication with our customers we have a companywide communication and computer system with coastal redundancy backup that allows fast recovery in the event of a natural disaster or other threats. To streamline our processes we have centralized most vessel accounting functions at head office and have experienced vessel accountants assigned to each account. This ensures continuity of accounting related matters and the timely production of accurate disbursement accounts.
