Vessel Chartering

Vessel chartering involves matching shippers, who need to move cargo, and ship owner/operators, who need to fill capacity. Companies can opt for a voyage charter, covering port, fuel, and crew costs to purchase a ship’s full capacity, or pay costs on a per-ton basis. Alternatively, charterers can elect to hire vessels for a specific length of time, which is called a time charter.

Charterers can engage a wide array of ships, including container vessels, RoRo and Project Cargo ships, and more.
