Independent brokering creates flexibility on multiple level resulting in lower overall transport costs
Operating as a fully independent broker with very good contacts and relations with the globally operating A-class Carriers and Owners whether operating in Liner Service and/or as tramper our aim is to charter vessels which first and foremost suit the requirements of the project on all aspects, i.e. technically, reliability, contractually, time-wise and freight. We can provide tailormade solutions in the field of:
Heavylift vessels load on/load off
Semi- and submersible vessels/pontons float on/float off
Open deck/dock vessels/Car Carriers roll on/roll off
Coastal / Inland
Through sub-contracting to reliable and likeminded partners, which are thoroughly screened up-front to ensure they match our standards and our work ethics, we can also provide:
Stuffing/Stripping of containers
Purchase of all type of containers based on project requirements
We will take ownership of all sub-contracted work so with no exception to the rule, we will thoroughly manage our sub-contractors throughout the duration of the projects they are engaged in.
Consultancy / Advisor
Penny wise, pound foolish
Operating on a fully independent basis we can also provide you with tailored well researched advice on each individual part in the logistical chain or any choosen combination of those. We simply suit and adjust to your requirements.
“Money talks” in every business
But we believe that smart cost allocation (spend just that little bit more) in the project set up on proper job evaluation and analysis will create substantial savings throughout the execution of the total project and mitigate wasted money later on with the unexpected. It goes without saying that on behalf of our Clients we will always search for the most competitive prices but never without losing focus on the value for money.
