History


Hall's Ship Supply, Ltd is truly the only family owned and operated ship chandlery in the Texas Gulf Coast service area. What started out primarily as a tug boat supplier in the early 80’s, quickly enhanced to a full service global ship chandler for all major cargo and chemical tankers by the mid 80’s. Hall's Ship Supply is operated by the original founder that started the operation in 1985.

Hall's history is driven by the training received by dedicated retired gentlemen of over 40 years experience and passed on to the next generation with the quality of service and commitment known only to a few. The history of personalized service, boarding vessel's, securing samples and orders, all post satellite, fax machine, email, cellular telephone, blackberry and other modern methods of communication. We incorporate this technology into our daily operation, but never lose sight of the personalized service that can only come with personal meeting's with vessel owners, officers, management companies and purchasing agents.

Hall's Ship Supply, Ltd is an American company operated by United States citizens and has no affiliation with any foreign ship chandlers or companies.

Testimonials

"Just wanted to give you all a quick up date on this vendor. This is the second time that they have offered to do something to assist the owners and or the vessel. As you may remember several weeks back they saw my message about some ropes that were missing from an order from Apollo. Hall's took it upon themselves to contact Apollo and deliver the ropes in their truck to the launch in New Orleans at no additional charge to the owners. Today they were making the delivery to the Genmar George T in corpus and saw that the vessel was landing life rafts and a piston crown. They contacted us and offered to bring these items back with them from corpus. In this day and age when most companies are just looking out for themselves, Hall's takes the time to consider others and also by them doing so they also save the owners money in the process." -Guardian Maritime


"Please be advised that the vessel received the needed valves on the Sunday morning, thanks to efforts of Mr. Monteleone from the Hall's Ship Supply, Houston. Such a professional and prompt response should serve as an example of the best practices in shipchandling business. The vessel's staff was then able to proceed with repair works, instead of waiting long hours until Monday morning and longer.

Further, Mr. Monteleone managed to get approval from the Vopak Galena Park to supply the vessel with slopchest items, most important of all, mineral water, while alongside their terminal. My understanding is that such a practice is not normally permitted and therefore Mr. Monteleone's efforts to supply Monte Casino at Vopak are even more appreciated.
In light of the above facts, I highly recommend the Hall's Ship Supply from Houston to be used with the fleet vessels for the storing needs at Houston, be it Bonded, Deck, Engine, Cabin stores and Provisions."
