Brief History of RSS
Regional Shipping Services Pte. Ltd., was
set up with the objective to
provide shipping services to the shipping
community in Singapore and
the Asian region.
We started with our main activity as a second hand container leasing
company, hiring containers to shipping lines
who needed short or long
term leases at lower rates. We bridged
the gap between the higher
rates and much more complex leasing
terms of the big leasing
companies and had our niche in leasing our
fleet of containers to
shipping lines serving the regional
Our master mariners were also then actively involved in container ship
planning in the capacity of local as
well as central (regional) ship
planners for some shipping
Another of our initial main activities was cargo survey, specializing
bagged cargoes and laboratory testing of
coffee, cocoa beans and
illipenuts, loading and discharging of big
bulky and long length cargoes.
With the changing trends, besides the above, we had entered into other
marine activities like commandering vessels
to/from regional countries for deliveries and re-deliveries where we
also supply the entire crew of all ranks up to ship masters.
Together with our tie-up with our
Malaysian counterparts, we now provide road transport to/from Peninsula
Malaysia on a regular basis.
Complementing this, we plan, organize and
co-ordinate tug and barge shipments of oil well equipment from
Singapore to the oil rigs in Malaysia for the oil majors.
Today, we also provide complete agency and ship husbandry services for vessels which call at Singapore for
short bunker stays and which need to sail quickly to their next
Due to our small organizational set-up, we are able to
provide our services not only at competitive fees,
but also with prompt response and personalized support. We physically
attend to all operations and give our clients regular feedback.
