Case Study

The Problem

An Oil Trader frequently called us for assistance with their Vessel Operations caused by repeated issues relating to their Letters of Credit.

The Solution

Having read several of their previous contracts it was clear that the wording of their Payment Clauses left them solely liable for all consequences caused by late arrival of Vessels. We recommended completely rewriting the terms to ensure the contract worked for rather than against them. In turn we also recommended amending a number of other Clauses, thus reducing the number of delivery problems experienced with customers and vastly decreasing the number of demurrage and other claims received.

We offer a range of services that are available to Trading Companies’ shipping departments and to pure Shipping Companies.

We are experienced in working with dry and liquid shipping.

Advice and assistance related to specific countries or ports

With relatively quick setup, we can provide a hotline for you to call with any problems. This service is charged on an hourly basis (prorata).

Protecting Broker

When it is vital to get the vessel you need, however you don’t have much experience with the broker. We offer a service to protect our client’s position and ensure that the fixture terms are in your favour and the day to operations are smooth and problem free.

Case Study

The Problem

An expanding Coal Trading Company contacted us asking they could restructure their Chartering Department into a stand-alone Shipping Company to act as a profit centre and handle third party business.

The Solution

We proposed and set-up a structure to act as a third party ship operator while at the same time fulfilling the needs of the Trading Company. It was important to ensure maximum efficiencies between the two whilst limiting their financial liabilities in the event of any sizeable legal claims. The Shipping Company now has a number of vessels under Time-Charter subsequently re-let on their own Standard Terms, and has seen an improved relationship with Owners along with reduced operating costs arisen from the streamlining of operations.

With our long-term experience within trading companies and our excellent contacts with Trade Finance Banks in Geneva, we can advise you on the best way to handle your financing needs.

  • Contacts with various banks.
  • Advice on maximising your existing relations with your banks.
  • All manner of assistance with Letters of Credit.

Case Study

The Problem

An Iron-Ore Trader in Asia contacted us for guidance on how to expand their financing options within Europe.

The Solution

Choosing to take advantage of our network in Geneva we arranged a host of introductions over a 48 hour period with a number of potential financiers. The client now has credit lines with several 1st Class European Banks which has allowed them to consolidate business in an otherwise very depressed market. Using Geneva based banks has also provided access to cheaper financing costs than were previously available in their home market.
