Chartering

CHARTERING

ForestWave, via its wholly owned subsidiary Schulte & Bruns Nederland, cooperates closely with Schulte & Bruns GmbH &Co. KG. The fleet commercially managed by the combination of ForestWave and Schulte & Bruns, consists of 40 multi purpose vessels in the range of 5,000 to 12,000 ton dwt. In the network of Schulte & Bruns we have offices in Hamburg, Groningen, Goes (NL), Newcastle (UK) and Sweden.

We operate a semi liner service between Baltic and Mediterranean of 4 to 6 sailings per month.

We offer owners either commercial management (voyage chartering) or time charter contracts on the basis of our and Schulte & Bruns’ cargo contracts. Our contract coverage is roughly 50%.

In respect of cargo contracts we focus on break bulk cargoes (forest products) and project cargo’s.

Fred Diepeveen, having 28 years of experience in this segment, is responsible for the chartering activities.
