P&I Correspondence


We at The Hodeidah Shipping & Transport Co. pride ourselves on having more than 20 years’ experience as Correspondents as such we have become the “eyes and ears” of the Associations that we have the pleasure of representing.

With our vast array of local knowledge the likes of being, port regulations, Maritime Law, Commercial Court procedures and local practices we are able to deal with the various problems which can confront the P&I Associations Members when their vessels are within the jurisdiction in which we as Correspondents are located throughout the Yemen.

We have offices at all the main Yemen ports being Hodeidah and Aden with sub branches at Saleef, Mokha, Ras Isa, Mukalla and Ash Shihr.

As an experienced P&I Correspondent we are able to immediately respond effectively and efficiently to any P&I related problem that the Members vessels may face.

Our professionalism is further enhanced by Hodeidah Shipping employing expatriate Master Mariners who now are our marine surveyors who with their years of experience at sea are able to attend to such matters as.

  • Onboard cargo condition surveys.
  • Followup surveys at the receiver’s premises.
  • Initial and final draft surveys.
  • On/Off hire Bunker surveys.
  • Hatch unsealing inspection.

Hodeidah Shipping can arrange independent cargo tallies.

So as to further promote our professionalism we have our in-house Lawyers who are able to assist us in any legal related matter and to represent and protect Owners/Charterers interests should a matter be referred to the local courts.

We handle your claim from the outset right through to settlement and recovery.

Hodeidah Shipping act in the best interests of our Principals and as such this has earned us a good reputation with the P&I Associations and their respective Members.
