Kestrel Guyana team make it happen with Höegh Autoliners

7 months ago

We recently shared some video footage on our social channels to give you an insight into our work. This ‘peek behind the curtain’ shows the Höegh Autoliners Caribia discharging cargo at the docks in Guyana. Drone footage reveals cars and other vehicles rolling off the Höegh ship and pans across the Georgetown port landscape. Also in the video are some shots of the wonderful Kestrel Guyana team who handle the Liner Agency for Höegh in Guyana.


Watch the drone footage here.


This cargo of cars, vans and large construction machinery has come from around the world – Asia, Japan and the UK, before reaching its end destination - Guyana. We are very proud to be the liner agent in Guyana for Höegh Autoliners. They are one of the industry leaders in climate change – more on that shortly. And we are extremely proud of our Kestrel Guyana team for making this delivery happen.


The Kestrel Guyana team

The Kestrel Guyana team are one of five incredible teams we have based in the Caribbean. Our strategically placed regional offices - in Barbados, St Vincent, Guyana, Trinidad and Jamaica - allow us to manage a comprehensive agency network and help us to ensure our handling of worldwide trade with the Caribbean runs smoothly.


At Kestrel we are experts in diverse shipments, from large-scale projects to small, time-sensitive shipments. We specialise in part loads and full container loads and have vast experience in RoRo shipments and vehicle carriers. Combining our dedicated liner services to niche markets in the world, alongside our ability to arrange logistics packages tailored to your requirements, we work on a truly global basis.


Our amazing Kestrel Guyana team is headed up by Allan Newark. Kestrel CEO Andy Thorne spent some time with Allan on a recent visit to Guyana – see the Guyana visit post on our Kestrel LinkedIn.


Congratulations again to the Kestrel Guyana team for making this Höegh Autoliners shipment go so smoothly – just one example of the great work you do daily!


Working with Höegh Autoliners

Our liner agency service in Guyana sees us working with Höegh Autoliners, a leading provider of ocean transportation services within the Roll on Roll off segment. Höegh Autoliners operate 11 trade routes in global trade systems, with about 3,000 port calls annually. Whilst they specialise in car and vehicle carrying, with a fleet designed for maximum flexibility, Höegh can cater for a wide variety of cargo. Their customers range from global vehicle manufacturers to producers of heavy construction equipment and other rolling and non-rolling stock. Höegh Autoliners is also a leading carrier of second-hand vehicles.


We at Kestrel are immensely proud to work with Höegh and continue to be inspired by them. Höegh Autoliners’ commitment and constant drive for improvement is admirable. They are leaders in the industry in terms of climate change, social responsibility and minimising their impact on the environment. Höegh is a proud member of the First Movers Coalition, a sustainable shipping initiative which you can read more about here, and they have recently built the most amazing new Aurora class vessels – the most environmentally friendly car carriers ever built!


RoRo shipments and shipping to Guyana

As a liner agency, at Kestrel we have the connections to coordinate RoRo deliveries worldwide. Our industry knowledge guarantees that no matter the size, weight or location of your shipment, we ensure it’s a prompt, efficient and cost-effective logistics solution.
