Ocean Freight Services

Operations Management

Ocean Freight

Javelin has a sophisticated operational management team that is able to manage both voyage and time chartering for the smallest of coastal vessels to the largest capesize vessel.

Hedging Solutions / Risk Management

Ocean Freight

Javelin primarily uses freight to transport our natural underlying bulk commodity flows. As a significant dry bulk shipper, we have access to physical shipping and use our low cost financial freight derivative lines to support and hedge our freight flows. We are also able to offer the same physical and financial hedging capabilities to stand alone freight owners and consumers.

Leasing Capabilities

Ocean Freight

With our long-term dedicated dry bulk commodity flows, Javelin is able to offer ship owners and financiers opportunities for long-term charters. As such, ship owners and financiers are able to place ships under long-term time charter to support development of new ships or acquisitions of operating ships. These activities are focused mainly in the Capesized and Panamax dry bulk sectors.

Just in Time Vessel Solutions to Producers and Consumers of Commodities

Ocean Freight

With sizeable, repeatable flows from certain ports, Javelin offers consumers and producers vessel flow sharing as well as long term subletting, giving the benefit of natural inbound traffic to certain export points. We also can enhance shipping economics by building up flows into larger size vessels through top-off capabilities. This cuts costs on the larger standard routes.

We have also entered into full outsourcing structures. This allows producers to ship direct to clients at destination, removing the need for large operational and execution teams.
