Hagland today

Hagland embraces international shipbroking, shipowning, marine agencies, business management & accounting services and real estate.

Hagland is owned and managed by brothers Arne and Knut Wendelbo Aanensen, representing third generation of Aanensen family ownership.

Since the two joined the company in 1978 and 1983, respectively, Hagland has developed from a shipbroking company into a group of companies offering a wide range of services to the shipping and offshore industries, as well as business management services and real estate. Building on decades of know-how and experience, our highly skilled people continuously aim to offer the best possible services to our clients.
