Charter Cargo Ships

Cargo Ships are chartered for dry bulk cargo originated at various ports throughout the world. The cargo ships are either directly chartered by the shipper or exporter or there through ship chartering company.

The chartering company can be a third company which charters the cargo ship from the cargo ship owners on behalf of the shipper. In this process, the complete risk of freight to be paid, documentation, dead freight, demurrages or any other charges are directly in charterers account. Some chartering company charters the cargo ship on bare boat charter or time charter and provides it on single voyage charter to shippers/ exporters.  Mostly those shippers are interested to charter vessel from third party who are new in chartering cargo ships and ship owners or operators are not showing any interest to provide the cargo ship on voyage charter. In some cases the third part charter also helps the shipper to club up their cargo with other shipper dry bulk cargo to get the freight benefits.
