Re-think ship management.
Experience our holistic service approach and enjoy focusing on your core business success.
We manage your vessels with true range and depth
Three key drivers decide on a ship’s overall performance: reliable steel & crew performance, optimized revenue generation and smart asset management.
In all that we do, we take into consideration the interaction between the three.
We deeply understand your holistic needs because we are...
... ship managers with vast expertise for all key vessel types, delivering the full range of services; from technical and crewing to quality, compliance, claims, innovation and sustainability.
... charterers ourself and know from direct experience what a ship needs to offer in order to be successful in its market over time.
... shipowners like yourself and as such provide a deep knowledge and understanding of asset strategy, finance and know what investment success in shipping means.
We care personally
Your challenges in good hands
Steel & strategy - go beyond standard approaches
Your multi-million Dollar asset deserves more than a standardized off-the-shelf service approach to enable its success in a complex and ever-changing environment.
We continuously review all relevant technical aspects for your ship individually in alignment with your strategy. Our proactive engineering mindset is focusing on cost and performance to allow optimized revenue generation.
Crewing - performing the right strategy
Crews are often defined only by nationality, rank and cost. As a result, ships are manned accordingly.
We have a different approach as we see the team on board as the most important contributor for your vessel´s success.
We apply an individual approach from selection to career planning to continuous learning and training.
This leads to great motivation, high retention and personal dedication.
A safety and performance culture on board is key important to ensure that your crew on board acts as an integrated part of the team ashore.
We ensure they together do this fully in line with your commercial and asset strategies.
Managing regulatory complexity
Reducing the carbon footprint is a major challenge in itself and key to stay in business. This is reinforced by various regulatory requirements such as EU ETS and CII, with more to come.
We ensure your compliance.
For shipowners, the management of these regulations not only means a continuous increase in administrative efforts, it holds potential for reduced profitability or penalties for non-compliance.
We are involved in these tightening regulations from an owners, managers and charterers point of view and offer solutions that take all stakeholders of your vessel into consideration.
Optimizing cost through digitization and smart purchasing
We regard OPEX as a challenge that requires innovation and dedication far beyond standard approaches.
And we see collaboration as instrumental as we will not spend resources and management fees to re-invent ideas.
Your vessel will benefit from our bespoke, forward looking category management approach that is based on collaboration and volume, combined with smart processes and a profound understanding of the market.
We further boost our performance for you through collaboration and partnering with sophisticated institutions and young digital companies that add even more innovative power to our daily operations.
