A Service To Be Experienced

Why Prudential Shipping

Why you’re here.

Our sole aim is to ensure the total satisfaction of our clients. Efficiently, without problems and as cost effectively as possible. We handle the issues as they arise, not you.

And, because we’ve got over 100 years of experience behind us, we’re pretty good at what we do, so problems are few and far between.

That’s why our clients trust us. We’re reliable. We’re professional. And we’re friendly. What more could you ask?

Well, we invest a great deal in training to make sure we’re up-to-date with the masses of new regulations each year so neither you nor ourselves are left stranded.

And we handle everything under one roof too in our state-of-the-art office in central Colombo so communications are quick and easy. Information on our wide range of services that range from Vessel Agency to Husbandry is literally just a desktop away.

Whether your vessel calls at Colombo, another port in Sri Lanka or even The Maldives, we’re also there to provide on-the-spot service.

Are we financially sound? Our bankers are delighted that we have a strong equity base to provide financial stability – but sad that they don’t earn that much on our limited borrowings.

Located in the heart of the busy Central Business District of Colombo, Prudential Shipping  is housed in a state-of-the-art office complex, complete with all facilities needed, to meet the challenges of Shipping, Logistics and Commerce.
