Inchcape Shipping Services, Punta Arenas was established in late 1994 as part of an ISS expansion process. The office was strategically installed considering that Punta Arenas has historically been the southern Chilean port with the most shipping activity. The importance of this port is clearly marked by the Magellan Strait because all the pilotage services start or finish close to Punta Arenas port.
ISS has long been the principal player in this area with innovations and new alternatives for pilotage services as well as for other activities, handling many kinds of ships and with a particularly high share of the cruise market.
ISS Punta Arenas, ISO 9001-2008 certified, has been always a leader in the cruise and tanker market in terms of market share. We continue to be our principals’ preferred agent thanks to the use of innovative tools and initiatives and the ability to turn ideas into improvements in the quality of services we offer.
