Our advantages

Active presence on the market with vision

If it is about wood chips then the founders have vast experience in the Atlantic market but are following the Pacific basin, too. We are growing our general bulk cargo base through our network, so we are direct with several cargo and ship owners and that number is growing. We monitor wood chip movements therefore we know the players. 

We are not a broker/fixture factory

We are not devided to "desks" by deadweight. We dedicate ourselves to our customers irrespective the size of their ship or cargo so we are a "one window" shop with one point of contact for any kind of size or cargo.

Cumulative experience

Our cumulative experience is extensive. Via our sister company, Pacific Shipping Group, we have ship owning, agency, ship management, logistic chain management experience with a huge supportive team behind us.
