The tramp division of the group

Dry Cargo

John T. Essberger - Dry Cargo, the tramp division of the group, is a shipowner in its own right and is actively working as a commercial Ship Manager for third party clients with a fleet of modern bulk carriers, sophisticated multi-purpose tonnage and container vessels as well as other purpose-built ships such as cement tankers. JTE-Dry Cargo is committed to providing services to their clients to cover the entire shipping spectrum including sale and purchase and joint ventures.

Chartering

JTE-Dry Cargo is handling the complete charter requirements of the existing managed and owned fleet along with those of their affiliated DAL Deutsche Afrika-Linien. JTE-Dry Cargo offers an experienced team attending to exclusive clients by dealing with all aspects of chartering, operating, bunkering, supervising, accounting and execution of freight contracts. We offer reliability and flexibility to our customers and employ our ships on short- or long-term 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.

Joint Ventures

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.

Sale and Purchase

JTE-Dry Cargo is responsible for the sale and purchase requirements of a number of reputable shipowners. This negotiating and administrative experience is equally availabe to other parties.

Thorough knowledge of the world's shipping markets, constant tracking of developments in the shipping industry, global connections and our efficient organization with all the knowledge of a large shipping group are the best guarantee for success to the benefit of our clients. By constantly monitoring the international shipping and cargo markets we ensure that we can act with precision and speed at the right time, always taking the prevailing specific geographic and cargo related features and market conditions into consideration in order to satisfy the particular needs of our partners and customers. Be it on the basis of chartering-in or chartering-out, sale and purchase or joint ventures - JTE Dry Cargo has both valuable experience as much as the applied know-how and is therefore ready to serve you covering all aspects of shipping matters.
