FIS physical freight expertise is concentrated in dry cargo shipping segments from handysize to post-panamax.
Our brokers work from offices across Europe, the Middle East and Asia, with in-house experience drawn from charterer, principal and broking backgrounds.
Rather than concentrate simply on fixing, FIS provides a consultancy service which aims to offer an end-to-end service to principals looking to make more of their freight market exposure and manage their risk.
"Freight Investor Services offers a range of physical freight and commodity services."
This includes marketing cargoes, advising on timing of when to fix and managing post-fixture and operational details.
The FIS physical service is designed to assist traders and owners looking to get involved in the physical freight market by building lasting and reliable relationships with targeted, first class partners.
In addition to finding ships and completing all post-fixture processes, FIS can provide full traffic, scheduling and operations support.
For companies new to the freight market, FIS can also advise on risk management, providing a link between physical trading and highly liquid paper contracts in shipping, commodities and bunker fuel.
