Chartering & Operations: Meet the Team…

Today, our cargo, and customer book, is extremely diverse and it is fair to say that we are in a position to carry virtually any bulk cargo in the market, including those of a hazardous nature.

Throughout our history, Carisbrooke has always aimed to be a ‘listening’ carrier and, as such, we have consistently proven able to evaluate and tailor innovative solutions to customers in all commodity sectors.

Our fleet size, in-house expertise and close associate network enable Carisbrooke to offer a worldwide market presence, and we take great pride in our long-established portfolio of blue chip customers.

Maintaining modern, quality and homogeneous tonnage, be it on the Short-Sea segment (5-8,000 dwt) or in the Deep-Sea (8,500-13,400 dwt), allows us to offer a high degree of flexibility, outstanding performance and competitive pricing.

If you are looking for quality performance with a friendly approach, try Carisbrooke – we will deliver.
