As Rivermaas sees it, the strength of the network makes the difference in the rapidly changing shipping sector. With ARAS Shipbrokers as a network partner, Rivermaas has specialist knowledge and expertise for the purchasing and sales processes of ships. “Just like Rivermaas, we stand for openness and clarity,” says Rod Schlick, director of ARAS.
“We have a technical commercial background and that’s very useful. Our sector is rather specialised. Few ships are the same. That’s the nice part of the work,” says Schlick. “Every case is different.”
Schlick says, “We then help make sure that the entire process of advice on valuation, negotiation and signing contracts right through to the delivery will run smoothly. We focus on the longer term, which is why we’ve worked with Rivermaas for years. We both want to do our job in an open and transparent way. That also ensures better results for both of us.”
In this overall picture, Rivermaas is a company with a signature of its own, as the S&P broker describes it: “Unlike many shipping companies, they assess projects on the merits of the various aspects of the project. They are flexible enough to be active in various niches within short sea shipping. If they spot a good opportunity, then they buy or sell.”
