Chartering is a core activity of any commercial management process which in accordance with BIMCO’s Standard Ship Management Agreement “SHIPMAN 2009” comprises but is not limited to “seeking and negotiating employment for the Vessel and the conclusion of charter parties or other contracts relating to the employment of the Vessel”. Depending on owners’ requests we provide for each ship voyage, single time charter (“time charter trip”) or where required period employment.
The Operational aspect of commercial management is a crucial part of the equation. This is the area where money can be saved or lost and a voyage can be made more or less profitable. Our experienced ship operators ensure the safe and efficient handling of all the ships and the smooth execution of all voyages.We are in constant communication with our competent ship’s Masters as well as with charterers, brokers, port agents and bunker suppliers.
