Why choose ACL Shipbrokers?
As an independent brokerage we are very aware that our reputation is paramount to our long term success. Our neutral position in the market allows us to give objective views on market trends and rates which you can rely upon.
We leverage all the advantages of a small and flexible organisation which means that our Clients can rely on a consistent level of professional service.
We would like to be part of your team when you need us and as we are only remunerated when we successfully conclude a sale or fix a charter or tow, our goals are completely aligned with yours as our Client.
By relying on us to do a professional job this frees you up to focus on your core business.
What you can expect
We pride ourselves in our flexibility and will work hard to fit in with your deadlines, regardless of time zone.
We are active members of the Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers and stand by their ethical approach to Shipbroking. We are also members of BIMCO and therefore keep abreast of developments of shipping contracts and changes to industry standards.
If you choose to work with us we will:
- Arrange and coordinate any inspections
- Draw up contracts and assist in contract negotiation
- Work with you until successful delivery of the vessel if a sale, or completion of a charter
- Where possible, we like to meet with Owners face to face which we find is the best way to keep up to speed with our specialist markets. We use a targeted approach when going to the market and pride ourselves in our discretion.
Regular liaison with specialist shipyards
Keeping up with the latest designs in the tug and workboat markets and liaising regularly with specialist shipyards gives us perspective on market trends and availability.
Experienced in various specialist vessel types we can add value if you are competing in a project which involves a spread of vessels.
Research underpins all that we do and therefore working with us can broaden your horizons and potentially give you access to markets you would otherwise have overlooked.
Your go to Shipbroker
We believe that having a Shipbroker you like working with and can trust is essential for Owners and Charterers; we want to be your ‘go to’ Shipbroker.
