Shipping Agency & Service is an activity of Kyriakakis Group which was started in 1979 in Chania, Crete.
Our experienced multilingual staff offer a prompt, efficient and professional service which has earned our company an impressive reputation in the travel industry.
The advantages of our island and especially of Chania for shipping business are great due to the fact that the Port of Souda is not only the host to a NATO base but it is also a Greek Navy Base as well as a large commercial port.
The port's strategic location next to international maritime routes makes it a gateway for traffic between the countries of the European Union and the East while at the same time it is a link between the Adriatic, the Balkans and the areas around the Black Sea.
For the last 20 years, Kyriakakis shipping has acted as agent and ship supplier for a wide variety of ships. By a process of constant specialization and adjustment to the changing needs and challenges of our times we are proud to be able to present written proof of our A class standard of services to HMS vessels of the British Royal Navy fleet, support vessels of the Royal Auxiliary Fleet and American, Australian, Royal Navy and Norwegian warships as well as from a number of cruises ships. Over the last 15 years Souda port has become a port of special interest for all military operations passing through the region.
Nowadays Souda holds first place as a choice for refuelling, rest and recreation and re-provisioning for the majority of passing ships.
