It can make sense to pool the earnings (or even profits/opex, sometimes) of sisterships (or similar ships). It distributes the risk by balancing market fluctuations and allows the fleet to present itself unified and strong in the market.
Pooling ships earnings also supports portfolio strategies. A part of the pooled ships can be employed in the open spot-market to participate in market upswings whilst other vessels can be covered by COAs or time-charters which provide more security but also limit the upward potential.
We are experienced pool-managers and offer an economic solution for ships we have under commercial control. We can also manage external pools as trustee would our experience be only required in that particular area.
Feel free to contact us for more information and ask for a specific offer for your situation.
