Chartering

Short Sea Shipping

Main focus lays in the trading area covering the North Sea up to the whole Mediterranean Sea

Our day to day involvement in the short sea chartering business raised us into a primary position amongst both charterers and shipowners. As disponant owners, we operate a fleet of small box shaped coasters, ideal for dry-bulk, projects and breakbulk cargoes. The vessels are operated on the spot market and voyages can be custom made.

To meet  the demand of our customers we charter and broker extra coastal tonnage.

Most of our tonnages are sea-river traders, sailing up rivers (river Douro, Duisburg, …) or going into ports with low draft accessibility (for example Flixborough in the UK).
