The maxim “time is money” is particularly relevant in relation to all aspects of shipping activity.
The “fixing” or chartering of vessels is generally the part of the shipping business transaction that any untrained individual might be able to negotiate. However, like all contracts, it is the attention to specific details in each trade, sometimes for very small items, that can make a considerable difference to the efficient execution of each voyage and charter. Sometimes, a few dollars per tonne saved in the freight, can be lost thousands of time over because the details were not properly negotiated in the main charter contract.
Management of the process beyond the charter transaction enables us to assist the client companies through all the stages of the voyage, providing oversight and advice.
We can appoint expert supercargo to attend and supervise on the charters behalf loading and cargo operations.
