As independent third-party ship management company, with over 10,000 qualified seafarers MJS Management & Logistics Int. manages a range of vessels including bulk carriers, container vessels, car carriers, oil tankers, gas carriers, and chemical tankers, ranging from 300 to 319,000 DWT - with many being young and energy-efficient with an age profile below the industry average.
We manage a proud fleet of bulk carriers for some of the most reputable owners in the world ranging from Handy Size to Panamax to Capesize and VLOC vessels. Regardless of age, size or weight, the performance of our fleet is constantly optimized to the highest standards globally and is comparable to the best in the world.
Bulk Carriers are perhaps the most vulnerable among the all the vessels in the world's merchant fleet by the nature of their design, cargoes carried and trading patterns sailed. Knowing the full details and measures of each of our carriers, our team of experienced Masters and Senior Officers place particular emphasis on safety to ensure the structural integrity of a ship remains consistent.
As a key team within MJS Management & Logistics Int., the Dry Cargo Operations Division not only play a critical role in consulting operational guidelines to be taken prior/after loading, such as arrangement of stowage and voyage, handling of short-landing, maintenance of heavy-lifting, and assessment of cargo out-turns, but also take care of administrative tasks for owners and their vessels, such as reviewing and managing the Mate's receipt, Bills of Lading, etc.
Tanker shipping is a dynamic industry that demands the very highest standards from both the managers on shore and the officers on the ships. There is no margin for error and a set of sturdy processes and trustworthy cargo operations is inherent to the success of these vessels. At MJS Management & Logistics Int., we currently manage Oil tankers - from MR Product Tankers to Aframax Oil Tankers to modern VLCCs - chartered to all first class operators.
Communications with the officers on board play a vital part in tanker management. The officers are trained to a very high standard, so there is little value in taking responsibility away every time a decision has to be taken. Instead, officers are led to solutions by seasoned shore based tanker professionals - part of the shore based Tanker Operations Division - who partner with onboard colleagues to keep a critical eye on every process and ensure compliance with safety with due regard to charter party requirements.
Chemical and Gas Tankers
Chemical and Gas Tankers have been an extremely important part of our portfolio since our inception. Today, we manage Chemical Tankers from 6,500 dwt to 45,000 dwt and Gas carriers from 6,000 Cubic to 40,000 Cubic semi and fully refrigerated tankers.
The best way to transport gases is in liquid form. However, the process involves routine hazardous operations and requires a very high standard of tank cleaning, such as palm oil, vegetable oils, tallow, caustic soda and methanol. It is therefore extremely important that all care is exercised as the consequences of an inadvertent error can be serious and have far reaching consequences for personnel and the environment.
Carriage of hazardous chemicals and sensitive cargo in bulk composes a niche segment in the shipping business - it requires a very specialized and sophisticated technical management as the rules and regulations to this segment are very stringent and severe. As such, chemical and gas tankers tend to entail a high initial investment, and therefore owners expect the vessels to be kept up to highest possible standards in a sustainable and profitable manner.
We are active and proud members of Chemical Distribution Institute's technical committee - a chemical industry organization that constantly works to improve the safety, security and quality of marine transportation and chemical storage.
We manage Container Vessels, ranging from 1100 TEU to state of the art 14,500 TEU, including 6 ULCV with an average age much below the global average, and a total dead-weight tonnage over 1,080,280.
At MJS Management & Logistics Int., we realize the enormous pressure of owners, operators and stakeholders face to ensure timely arrivals and departures of these specialized ships. In addition to the robust processes we have in place, we have tailor made courses that our crew undergoes to ensure safe sailings. These include simulator courses for these navigational officers and special modules for Electrical officers on Reefer container maintenance.
This along with our distinctive technical management ensures that no time is lost to maintenance or unplanned off-hires - all in an effort to increase the earning potential of a vessel.
