In the present market, there is abundance of tonnage for sale and the transactions are moving at an increasing pace. In this process, Klaveness can assist in rating and benchmarking tonnage, and further assist Owners in optimising their ships.
At times when the purchase transactions of second hand tonnage is moving fast, it is crucial to have robust figures on a vessel’s actual speed and consumption and by this have a ship which is attractive in the market.
The time charter market is getting increasingly sophisticated on the pricing of tonnage. This is partly due to the challenging market seen over the past years, but also because it is now possible to measure performance with better accuracy than before.
Klaveness were pioneers when we started to optimise ships on eco-speed in 2011, and have built up procedures for monitoring and optimising ships to take out their full performance in a changing market.
By applying a systematic approach, Klaveness has built up a database and rating system for standard bulkers, and with robust data on some 700 dry bulk ships we can assess their earning potential in a given market. We use this information to evaluate time charter candidates, and for the benchmarking and optimisation of pool tonnage for the benefit of the pool member. The same data is also used to for benchmarking purposes, to continuously improve a vessels’ performance.
