Why we stand out

We offer a full shipping service

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.
