Caravel Maritime is uniquely positioned in the marketplace given that we are one of the few fully integrated maritime companies providing technical and commercial management services, are vessel owners, and have access to our own cargo base of commodities.
A key part of the Group is Fleet Management Limited, one of the world’s largest independent third-party ship management firms with a history that spans 29 years. Our fleet of 650+ vessels under technical management is supported by 27,000+ qualified seafarers and 1,100+ onshore maritime professionals, across 23 offices in nine countries.
Commercial & chartering
We specialize in providing in-house and third-party commercial and chartering services for the transport of dry bulk cargo. Our scale, experience, and expertise place us among the world’s leading dry bulk operators. Our business is focused primarily on the Supramax through Kamsarmax vessel segments of the dry bulk sector.
The Caravel Group’s owned vessels fly the Hong Kong flag. Our fleet meets the highest standards of design, technical efficiency, environmental performance, and safety.
In addition to our own extensive maritime operations, we make selected investments or joint venture partnerships in other maritime players with which The Caravel Group is not in direct competition.
