Our activities are built around chartering of seagoing vessels, for both short sea and deep sea. We charter the right vessel to meet your requirements and come up with creative solutions to your most challenging problems. In addition to transportation, we arrange pre-carriage and onward-carriage of your cargo, surveys, stevedoring, and agency services. In the Netherlands we personally deal with agencies on your behalf, leveraging our knowledge and expertise to secure the most competitively priced services.
