We aim to maximise the earning potential of the clients vessels by using world-wide brokering network, the evaluation of alternative opportunities, the negotiation of charter-party terms and the fixing of the vessel. The preparation of 12 month budget with quarterly actuals and revised forecasts.

Operations.

We will appoint and liase with technical managers. Arrangement of fuel, diesel and lubricating oil supplies as required bearing in mind current requirements and market prices. It is in our interest to monitor each vessel's survey position, insurance, technical condition plus the maintenance and repair programme, stores and provision status and make appropriate recommendations to clients.

Scheduling Services.

We will undertake the preparation of schedules of owned, chartered and spot vessels against cargo flows. We offer the evaluation of the best method of covering specific requirements to minimize costs, taking into account long ballast legs and waiting time on owned tonnage when compared to spot market availability.

We are also able to monitor opportunities for vessel disposal: advise on beneficial timing as well as the negotiation on the clients' behalf with potential buyers and complete all the necessary documentation to finalise the sale.
