Who We are

From its beginnings in 1937 when C.F.Sharp Shipping Agencies opened its first port agency office in the Philippines it grew, establishing offices in Singapore, Malaysia, Japan, Hong Kong, Taiwan and the name of C.F.Sharp Shipping Agencies became synonymous with providing reliable quality shipping services in the Far East – long before ISO and multinationals. It was in the mid-60’s that C.F.Sharp Shipping Agencies was first asked to provide Filipino seafarers to oil major tanker owners.
