Alex. Birger Grieg AS
Shipbrokers – Port Agency – Bunkers
The company was established in Bergen in 1891 by Alex. Birger Grieg. He was a close relative of the composer Edvard Grieg, with ancestors coming from Fraserburgh in Scotland. After three generations of family owner ship the company has become an internationally recognised shipbroker and ship’s agent, serving its Principals, Shipowners and Charterers worldwide. The company operates on an independent, non-exclusive basis and has therefore been able to remain highly competitive. With experienced and dedicated staff and network of agents, Alex. Birger Grieg offers quality, continuity and personal follow-up for all of its services all over Norway.
Some of the specialist niche services provided, such as the shipment of heavylift cargoes and awkward loads, salvage and towage operations and bunkerpurchase and sales, have been developed to such a high degree that the customer receives a full turnkey service. The company has even managed the worldwide shipment and subsequent commissioning into service of over 65 new and second hand fast ferries.
In 1993 the company formed an offshoot, named BERGEN AGENT AS, to act as the shore representative for the off-shore industry. Customers include engineering and construction companies and supply boat owners and operators. Together with a range of carefully selected sub-agents, the company is able to offer a full range of services to the offshore sector.
