WHAT WE DO:
Provide Quality Shipping Services for Commodity, Project and Packaged Shipments
The Shipbrokers and Chartening Agents of Stewart Alexander & Company, Inc., represent charterers of many commodities and products. Examples of this include- grain, sugar and other agricultural products; fertilizers, cement and gypsum; coal and petcoke, metals and ore; recyclables, lumber and forest products; as well as a full range of dry bulk commodities. We get the right ship for the job. Whether standard or specialized, such as self-load/discharge bulkcarriers, we are able to arrange trial shipments and containerized cargo through our sister company, Stalco Forwarding Services, Inc., to provide full-service transportation for our clients.
Our brokers are experienced in the technical details of the commodities as well as in the current and projected freight rates, and can obtain the best rates and terms for our charterers. Our team is able to rate business for our clients prior to the sale, and the trader can decide whether to short the freight or fix forward. We can arrange single spot voyages, timecharters (including management), and contracts of affreightment, working with reliable owners and operators world-wide.
Our highly experienced post-fixture department handles notices, coordination of cargo deliveries, charter party preparation and operational follow-up, as well as prompt finalization of all voyages for our clients.
