About Us

We would like to introduce ourselves to you and ask for your consideration in appointing MENTOR SHIPPING AGENCY as your Port agents in South Africa for any of your vessels calling at SA ports.

MENTOR SHIPPING AGENCY (PTY) LIMITED was established in 1976 as a subsidiary of DEVONIA SHIPPING (PTY) LIMITED, but as from April 1993 the company has become a fully independent company by the shareholding in the company being purchased by Mr. Graham Richard Jones, our Managing director and then in June 2014 his son Mr. Darryl Jones bought the company as Sole Director with Mr. Graham Jones retained as a Specialist Consultant.
The excellent service provided by staff of MENTOR SHIPPING AGENCY has attracted the confidence of numerous prominent Ship Owners, Traders, Charterers and Operators worldwide, as our Principals who have their Liner vessels, various Bulk and Break bulk carriers, Container vessels, Dry Docking vessels and Bunker, stores, water vessels calling in Port and also “Off Port Limits” service at our SA Ports.
We are the appointed agents for many local shippers and receivers of tallow/vegetable oils, chemicals and white oils as well as handling cargoes of granite, project cargo including heavy lift cargoes and bulk shipments such as coal, maize, wheat and chrome ore’s for our Principals.
The fact the MENTOR SHIPPING AGENCY has offices at all our South African ports, including Walvis Bay, has been very beneficial to our Principals, with each of our offices having teams of enthusiastic staff, professionals in their fields, all striving to give the BEST possible service, whilst always ensuring that our Principals interests are kept fully protected at all times.
We at MENTOR SHIPPING AGENCY (PTY) LIMITED would appreciate your recommendation of our appointment as “INDEPENDENT AGENTS” for any of your vessels calling for discharge or loading of wet and dry cargoes and bunker/repair vessels at any of our South African Ports and we can assure you of the very best attention and services of your vessels requirements throughout our coastline.
This is the motto that we at MENTOR SHIPPING AGENCY have adopted for all our PRINCIPALS worldwide and is the one we live by through our SERVICE STANDARDS.
