History and Heritage

Shipping is in our blood. With five consecutive generations of experience in the maritime industry, KTB’s long-standing heritage in shipping dates back to the 1800s. KTB works on global projects as well as Canadian projects.

KTB has a long-standing history of forging relationships with suppliers to help us create the best shipping solution for our clients. Marine shipping strategy requires frequent and ongoing collaborations with industry leaders to come up with a customized and one-of-a-kind shipping strategy. For example, to transport a commodity – the Charterer, the Shipbroker, and the Ship-Owner must work closely together for a successful and safe shipment. We inspire, support, and help one another to ensure the job gets done right.

Many businesses create a business model and never examine it again. At KTB, we disrupt the traditional thinking model. Our process is constantly tested, challenged, and reassessed to make sure it is the most efficient and cost-effective. We welcome this rigorous process as it allows us to continually evolve and reach the best outcome.

We love brainstorming with our clients as shipping is a business that revolves around enduring partnerships. We will take the time needed to understand what your needs and expectations are. We are proud to go above and beyond for each and every shipment.

For KTB, marine transportation solutions is not simply a job, it is our passion. We are enthusiastic about each project we work on since we love the creative, social, and intellectual process. We are deeply honored and privileged to be able to work with our clients on the marine supply chain.

You can trust that we will go the extra nautical mile to provide a range of chartering and operation services beyond the role of a traditional shipbroker.
