Our expertise

We take a pro-active approach to the long-term strategic planning requirements of our clients.

Our broking, operations and research teams are configured to respond in the moment but also to accompany clients over many years. Our spot chartering teams can fix a ship or cargo ‘now’ while our project and asset teams work with research to secure future business and the vessels to carry it out. Working in this way over many decades, we have built a market coverage that is among the most comprehensive. Our close relations with many of the world’s leading ship-owners, industrial producers, traders and shippers attest to this.
