Our activities are built around chartering of seagoing vessels, for both shortsea and deepsea. We charter the right vessel to suit the particular cargo, and in addition to transportation, we even arrange pre-carriage and onwards-carriage of your cargo, surveys, stevedoring, and agency services. In the Rotterdam area, we personally deal with agencies on your behalf, leveraging our knowledge and expertise to secure the most competitively priced services.

Let's discuss your vessel requirements.
