contracts, voyage, time and/or bareboat charter basis. To ensure maximum utilisation of both our own vessels and
those managed by us we arrange freight contracts, voyage and time charter all over the world.
JTE-Dry Cargo operates joint ventures by combining its shipping know-how with the cargo potential of established
charterers and shippers. This effective combination enables us to develop tailor-made concepts thus providing
a sound basis for optimised results that benefit both partners.

negotiating and administrative experience is equally availabe to other parties.
