We provide ship-owners and traders with competitively priced freight and a world-class shipping service.
We run a time charter fleet of about 35 modern bulk carriers, each with modern cranes and grabs, to transport cargo for customers, ranging from agricultural trading houses to industrial end-users.
To meet your shipping demands and contractual needs, wherever they may be, we combine our worldwide portfolio of time-chartered vessels with access to spot chartered tonnage.

We’re more than traders – when we commit to ship a cargo, we see the deal through from the opening conversation to the end of the voyage.
We’re known for our long-term relationships
As a trading company, we’ve been involved in shipping since 1783, and we’ve had a stand-alone shipping business since 1983. This deep experience means we know what we need to do to exceed our client’s expectations, and we can deliver the best possible service.
We manage risk
There’s a huge amount of risk in the shipping world. But our customers know we’re a reliable partner – and we’ll do everything we can, such as using freight and fuel derivatives, to minimise all risks. Plus, as part of a large, global organisation, we can react to volatile markets quicker than many of our competitors.
