Bulk and general cargo affreightment
Chartering of bulk and general cargo remains the main line of our business. By the time of the company establishment its employees have already had more than ten-year experience of work in this sphere. For a long time this specific line has remained a primary one for us. Among the goods chartered by us the greatest volume belongs to transportation of non-ferrous and ferrous metal, sawn timber, scrap metal, fertilizers, sulphur, petcoke and general cargoes. Geography of these transportations is rather wide. We have obtained experience of work almost in all main Russian ports, in many ports of Europe, the Baltic, Black and Mediterranean seas as well as in some ports of the North and South America, Africa, India and China.
For many years the specific trend in this line of our business has been chartering of small consignments from Saint-Petersburg to the ports of the East Coast of the USA and the Gulf of Mexico. On this route we chartered consignments from 20 to 40 tons of aluminum and steel.
For a long time of work at the freight market we have made familiar or had an opportunity to cooperate with a large number of companies that make regular shipping of the above mentioned goods from the Russian ports of the Baltic and the Mediterranean seas. We have not only longstanding friendly relations with many of these companies but long term contracts as well.
Our permanent presence at the freight market allowed establishing friendly relations with a large number of ship owning companies. A long history of cooperation, good business reputation and constant volumes of transportations give us the opportunity to take the advantage of low freight rates and flexible service from the whole line of ship owning companies that have been our long standing partners for many years.
