Ship Chartering

Tuscor Lloyds provide full and part ship chartering for cargo when liner services are not available.

Tuscor Lloyds’ projects team works with an extensive network of fleet owners to find suitable vessels for charter whilst negotiating the best routes and prices for project requirements.

We only charter cargo vessels when logical and necessary, and where we believe the cargo requirements and budget will justify such an undertaking. Our project management staff will personally attend to the shipment port-side, both at origin and destination to ensure the cargo is loaded and received safely. They understand the importance of on-site presence to oversee the often delicate manoeuvres. These may involve the lifting and securing of valuable cargo on board full or part chartered vessels for long intercontinental voyages.

Heavy Lift Specialists

For special heavy cargoes Tuscor Lloyds call upon specialist heavy lift vessels to make loading / unloading simple and efficient. We operate in-line with Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers (ICS) practices. This means that our vessel chartering customers can have full confidence that their job is carried out to the highest international and professional standards. Most importantly our ship brokering team follows the ICS motto ‘Our Word, Our Bond’.
