Brax Shipping, established in January 1982, is an independent shipbroking company. We aim to engage our clients in close, long-lasting business relationships based on our proven ability to guide to successful and profitable solutions.
We are specialized in the ferry, RoRo and cruise vessel segments and our accumulated knowledge renders us a unique position and we are considered to be among the leaders within our niche.
Extensive knowledge of our markets, market actors and technology combined with a vast international network enables us to provide information and know-how to actively support the entire process from decision making via negotiations to the finalization and follow-through of an acquisition or a charter.
Focusing on sale & purchase and chartering of vessels has allowed us to build a solid base of world-wide clients among ship owners, operators and charterers. In addition, the contracting of newbuildings with shipyards as well as the challenging task of scrapping assignments has given us a full perspective of all commercial aspects of a vessel’s life cycle. In addition, we utilize our knowledge through advisory consultations and valuations for banks, lawyers, and financing institutions.
Our background is mainly from ship owning companies, a fact we believe helps us identify opportunities for our clients – both present and prospective.
