Carolina Shipping Company was founded in 1927 in Charleston, S.C. In its early years, the company operated several of its own general cargo vessels, and performed agency and stevedoring services. After selling its ships, Carolina Shipping Company continued to grow, providing agency and stevedoring services throughout the South Atlantic. In 1989, the company sold its stevedoring interest to Stevedoring Services of America and was itself acquired by Biehl International of Houston. Under Biehl International, Carolina Shipping Company has redirected its efforts and now functions exclusively as a steamship agency. Carolina Shipping Company continues to build on its reputation of service, integrity and dependability.
