Skärhamn has been the base of the shipping company from the outset. Today its office is in newly-built premises and is attractively located right next to the harbour. The majority of the staff at Tarbit's office in Skärhamn have been to sea before coming ashore and this offers many benefits during their work. They must be able to understand the problems and provide support to the ships, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Some people call this work - we call it shipping.
