The market for freight trading and forward freight agreement (FFA) trading can be summed up in three words: complex, volatile and overcrowded.
Dry freight trading risks differ from wet freight trading risks, and both are different from the challenges associated with trading derivatives of freight capacity.
Creating operational excellence around voyage charters, voyage calculations and vessel operations is a challenge both for providers and buyers of freight capacity.
Margins are under pressure from strict regulations around emissions standards, volatility in bunker fuel pricing, and challenges to traditional shipping routes in the form of piracy and overcrowding.
We work with freight traders and vessel charterers to design business processes across every stage of the freight and shipping value chain. We select and implement the best system for each client using our in-depth knowledge of the challenges that market participants face, and the solutions designed to address them.
