Riverlake assists clients in setting up Shipping Desks. 

One of Riverlake’s specialty is to help clients who do not have a shipping department to establish one based on internationally recognized organizational standards. This includes providing guidance and support to set up the necessary processes, systems, and personnel to efficiently manage shipping operations in accordance with global best practices.

As one example, in the late 90s, Riverlake was tasked by Lukoil to establish a transparent shipping desk. Riverlake created and registered Eiger Shipping, a 100% Lukoil subsidiary, to handle shipping activities through its Geneva office. Riverlake was responsible for organizing and developing the shipping desk and fleet and ensuring profitability and market leadership.

At its peak under Riverlake management, 44 vessels were operating under the Eiger Shipping entity. In 2007, Lukoil decided to bring in-house a high-quality shipping operation that had been built up over eight years of exceptional growth by Riverlake.
