V.Ships is one of the world’s leading third-party managers of bulk carrier vessels, with vast experience at sea and ashore of geared and gearless bulk carriers. With a global fleet of over 140 bulk carriers, our established network allows us to share best practices across our large and varied fleet for optimising your vessel performance.
Safety underpins everything we do. This is reflected in the consistently strong safety performance of our managed fleet of bulk carriers, which continues to improve year on year. Our latest performance data reports that our Lost Time Injury Frequency has dropped 35% in 2019, to average below 0.3. Our Total Recordable Case Frequency (TRCF) average is 1, with a 33% reduction in TRCF cases in 2019.
Our track record and reputation for safety and compliance is important to our seafarers, shore staff and customers alike, and has allowed us to maintain excellent relationships with major bulk cargo operators. With strong RightShip rating, we ensure that vessels under management are maintained in optimum condition, whilst minimising technical off hire.
Our digital ship management platform will support with the smart interpretation of data to maximise the operations efficiency of your fleet, and help realise your vessel’s opportunities for a measurable impact. By processing crucial real time data from every area of your bulk carrier’s operations, our platform improves your decision-making process to optimise performance and drive profitability – such as monitoring vessel speed, reducing fuel consumption and associated environmental impacts whilst ensuring that charter and voyage performance requirements remain in focus.
Through our established independent contact organisation, our global buying power also helps to obtain maximum value for goods and services, reduce your overall average operating costs, whilst increasing your vessel efficiency.
