“Safe and sustainably profitable shipping is what Rivermaas aims for. This typically features strong cooperation between specialist partners. Rivermaas is responsible for the technical management of its own fleet of ships that operate in the Greater Europe short sea shipping sector. The contributions of our partners include crew management and commercial management”
Ensuring that technical management is handled by people who have been trained to be officers and who have experience as officers on board seagoing vessels means we have acquired a vast wealth of knowledge and experience. In day-to-day operations, Rivermaas can therefore ensure professional maintenance and crew supervision as well as high-quality logistics.
Two ships are currently permanently active in the Northern European waters. Because all our ships have the highest classification for coping with ice, these two ships can permanently cover a large area. Three other ships focus on transporting bulk goods between ports in Central and Southern Europe and those in North Africa.
The crews on the ships are responsible for part of the maintenance work. If specialist service technicians and maintenance services are required, this will be taken care of at the ports. Rivermaas purchases these services and uses a strategic maintenance schedule to decide on the investments in maintenance and innovation on the ships. The knowledge and skill of the crew on the spot are expressly included when this is weighed up.
