International shipping. This is what you need to know!
International shipping? Choose the right partner.
When you choose a partner for any kind of job, you’re best selecting an experienced specialist. One that knows everything there is to know about the job in hand and has seen everything there is to see, so knows how to act in every situation. For international shipping, Vertom is that partner. Over 45 years, we have been active in the international shipping industry. We know it inside and out.
International shipping is about making the right match
In international shipping it’s important to match the right vessel to your freight. With a too small vessel the problem is obvious, but also a vessel that can carry much more than your freight requires, isn’t what you should want. Why? Because such a ship entails much higher costs than necessary. The trick is to find a vessel that’s perfect for the job. That’s something Vertom can help you with.
With our modern fleet of over eighty ships with a huge range in size and tonnage (1,500 tot 10,000 DWAT) are able to transport almost any freight, no matter the size or sort.
Dry and Tank Chartering
Whatever type of freight you need to have shipped: steel, grains, fertilizers, project cargoes, mineral products, chemicals, edible oils, biodiesel, molasses. You name it. Vertom always has the right ship for you.
