Chartering Desk: matchmaking and more…
Challenged by a world of disappearing breakbulk liner services? How do you secure competitive part charter freight rates, deal with fixture legal aspects, follow market trends, and bunker fluctuations?
Chartering is more than just having a Rolodex. It is not just a task-oriented job, it is knowledge-based. The broker has to understand law and contracts, and how these apply to the operations to be undertaken.
The Ahlers chartering desk helps you find the right vessel for your cargo.
Ahlers in-house chartering desk
- Our global chartering desk (based in Singapore) works very closely with our regional offices worldwide ensuring that for each cargo, they find the most suitable vessels on the market.
- Besides the match-making role, they also support the group by keeping a very close eye on the market trends, bunker prices, performance of different carriers, and giving legal advice related to charter parties, etc.
- The chartering desk is a vital part of the Ahlers’ Project Team and it enables us to stay agile in today’s volatile ocean freight market.
