About Us

Our History

Company founded in 2016, addressed to supply Antarctic stations (food & technical matters) and snowmobile rent. Afterwards, in 2021 our founder Milenko Buljan, with over 20 years of experience, identified a crucial need for a high-quality service within the ship agency and Antarctic Logistics, establishing Shackleton’s Way Ship Agents. 

With a keen understanding of the challenges faced by clients operating through Chile, he recognized the necessity for a specialized team that provides fast assistance and coordination services. These services catered to scientific vessels, passenger expedition ships, and Antarctic stations, offering tailored solutions to address their unique requirements. With our extensive expertise and commitment to solving industry challenges, Shackleton’s Way Ship Agents quickly became a trusted provider in the field.

Why Shackleton

Milenko Buljan, the founder of the company, decided to name it «Shackleton’s Way» in honor of the renowned explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton.
Sir Shackleton’s incredible leadership, resilience, and determination in the face of adversity have made him an icon of exploration and an emblem of unwavering commitment. The ability to adapt to ever-changing circumstances is exemplified in Shackleton’s words “Difficulties are just things to overcome, after all”.

Sir Ernest Shackleton’s Antarctic expeditions exemplify the spirit of exploration, teamwork, and the pursuit of excellence. His story serves as a reminder that with passion, determination, and a strategic approach, seemingly insurmountable obstacles can be overcome. 

The company, through its name, aspires to reflect the legacy of Shackleton by embracing the principles of resilience, leadership, and the pursuit of greatness. It symbolizes the commitment to providing exceptional services, overcoming challenges, and delivering excellence to clients in the maritime industry.
