Securing term deals
Time charter gives greater freedom to those who charter in this way.
We have a unique knowledge of niche markets, especially those related to distribution. Our unrivalled expertise of onshore distribution networks, particularly in a large number of islands, ensures our clients secure their supply and transport optimally in terms of price, position and quality to maximise returns.
In today’s volatile market, we work with our customers to ensure that fixed volumes are transported securely, ensuring that port-to-port routes are always secured. Some geographical areas may suffer from a lack of vessel accessibilty or capacity. The complexity of some trades may require the securing of time-chartered vessels.
In the case of large volumes, not controlling your transportation can pose significant difficulties and leave you at the mercy of competition or struggling to find ships or worse, having to pay extremely high transportation costs when freight rates are high.
