Parker, you've made fuel escalations a profit centre for us."

people with years of operating and management backgrounds in the
transportation business. Our business intelligence assignments have
let us englighten them about both qualitative and quantitative aspects
of the shipping business. We help our freight and
finance clients optimize and smooth volatility, while increasing

OUR EMPHASIS : CASH FLOW IS KING
-EXPERT WITNESS and litigation support for lawyers (was the ship really earning $44,000 per day?). We have assisted, as expert witness, in the valuation of both assets and freight markets at particular points in time.
-Freight market analysis for investment bankers (example: what is the market contour for product tankers in offshore trades?). Such earnings scenarios can then be input into both asset and company valuations.
We are called upon to develop freight and energy hedging strategies (as discussed in a separate page), and engineer and reverse engineer financial packages for shipping (tanker, drybulk, container, gas carriers). We have worked on financial modelling in connection with capital raises for both public and private markets.
