Handling all your Chartering & Operation Requirements

We’re on a quest to be the best boutique marine transportation supply chain firm.

Our Story

KTB provides global clients with highly specialized vessel sourcing, contract negotiation, market research and analysis, and marine consulting services.

Since 1988, we have applied our boutique approach to help clients develop bespoke charter party terms, including Charterer protective clauses. We have decades of experience and relationships backing our approach.

We serve our clients through:

Vessel sourcing

Tactical transportation strategies

Streamline communication and supplier coordination

Negotiating marine contracts

Process integration

Information sharing services between supply chain partners

Developing strategic partnerships

Aligning marine and supply strategy

We work on two levels: chartering and operations – knit together

We source vessels that exceed client needs; negotiate the marine transportation contract; and follow the shipment through operationally. KTB is an integral part of the shipment process, functioning as a seamless extension of our Charterer’s marine, trading, and logistics desks.
