Our fleet

We connect the coasts of Europe

European short sea shipping is our expertise. Our ships are flexible and can carry all kinds of dry cargo. They serve even the smallest ports with dry, (break)bulk and project cargo and as such connect the coasts of Europe together.

We see ourselves as partners of the cargo industry and utilise the expertise of our teams to master the daily challenges to the transport of goods. Through years of experience in ship management, chartering and crewing, we generate reliable and sustainable results for our clients and investors.
