Our field of excellence

As an independent shipbroking house we offer comprehensive services to our clients in the areas of handysize/handymax and panamax dry-cargo chartering. Originally we were a specialist dry-cargo broker, and from there our area of business has expanded – based on long term commitment to our customers and the industry.
We are panel broker for the Baltic Exchange evaluating the handysize and handymax market.
