Our skill in offering a full portfolio of third party technical ship management services is our team of highly skilled and dedicated superintendents. We monitor the vessels' performance closely to ensure optimum operating efficiency. Further, ships under our care are inspected at regular intervals by the superintendent concerned to follow up on all aspects of shipboard operational matters and to maintain an active contact with the vessel.
We take special interest to ensure vessels under our charge get prompt attention at all times. It is this commitment that assures every vessel's operating requirements are met and vessel operating condition is always at its best.
Working side by side with our superintendents is our Planned Maintenance System that allows for close monitoring and timely vessel maintenance. The vessel performance and cost savings demonstrates the quality of our technical management services.
Purchasing is more than a process of acquiring supplies. The process involves procuring the best quality goods and services at the most economical price. Through our global purchasing experience, and network of highly reliable suppliers, we negotiate for favourable agreements and volume purchases. As a result, we are not only able to secure attractive pricing on a range of supplies, including spare parts, lubricating oil, paints and provisions, we are also able to adopt a very precise inventory control – maximising savings for our principals. Furthermore, our purchasing system is fully integrated with our PMS on board vessels, this ensures that supplies are properly managed.
We ensure that all vessels under our management are covered against marine perils and third party liabilities. Through our well established relationship with the underwriters and the brokers, we are able to assist our principals in obtaining competitive rates for H&M and P&I coverage. Also, our insurance department plays an active role in handling and settlement of Owners claims as well as assists in the process of insurance policy renewal.
