Introducing the key members of the
Monson Offshore team.


Dale Monson

Managing Director +61 417 931 400

Owner and founder of Monson Offshore, Dale has been involved in shipping agency for 50 years, originally as an employee of a shipping agent in Fremantle and later starting Monson Agencies Australia in 1981.

The offshore agency section within the company expanded and in 2008 Dale formed a separate company, Monson Offshore, to develop and specialise this business.

Dale continues to be involved with the daily operations of Monson Offshore. The success of the company, along with the continued success of Monson Agencies Australia, can be attributed to the fact that he passes his wealth of knowledge onto all members of his staff.
