The key link in global supply chains

We offer a truly comprehensive end-to-end shipping consultancy service across all sectors of shipping and Offshore. As well as covering all the world’s major trade routes, we have in-depth knowledge of each product and every ship vessel type. Specialists in the full range of vessel chartering contracts, from shuttle tanker time charters and bareboat charters to spot fixtures and COA contracts – we support our clients at every stage. We deliver a global shipping service whilst maintaining personal relationships at a local level, providing hands-on expertise and guidance.

Our premise is simple: The better informed we are, the more business our clients want to do with us. And the more business we do, the better informed we become. We evolve with our clients, providing them with exceptional shipping strategic support in order to foster long-term relationships. This is supported through collaboration across business lines. Our shipping broker specialists have unrivalled industry knowledge, supported by outstanding market intelligence, from our colleagues in Clarksons Research, and industry-leading information and technology tools. 

We draw on the strategic information they provide to best meet the needs of our clients. Likewise, by collaborating with our colleagues in the Financial team, we’re not only able to help clients move physical goods, we can also assist them with financing projects and managing their exposure to risk. Our close working relationships with our Clarksons Securities and Debt & Leasing teams in Oslo give us a competitive edge, enabling us to not only bring parties together, but to assist in financing the deal through full investment banking services and tailored debt solutions.
