Marin Ship Management

Marin Ship Management is a leading player in the tanker segment, with an impressive reputation. Our tankers sail for the top 10 energy companies, which is certainly no coincidence. We distinguish ourselves through excellent vetting results, and compliance with TMSA 3. Our vessels provide not only operational efficiency, but also comply with the highest safety standards and applicable regulations.

Our tanker fleet, sailing entirely under the management of MF Shipping Group, comprises product, oil and chemical tankers. They are mainly deployed in north-west Europe. The majority of our vessels sail proudly under the Dutch flag.

Moreover, Marin Ship Management manages various vessels transporting dry cargo and cement. They obviously also comply with the strictest quality standards, and excel in efficiency. A number of cement carriers have LNG tanks, alongside a fully automated loading system for cement.

Flagship Management Company 

This organisation bears many similarities to Marin Ship Management and focuses entirely on the dry cargo segment. These dry cargo vessels are mainly active in north-west Europe and the Mediterranean region. The transport a wide range of cargo, including bulk goods, wood products, steel products, loose goods and contract freight.
