Dry cargo broking Dry cargo brokers are typically specialists in the chartering of bulk carriers, and are appointed to act either for a ship owner looking for employment for a ship, or a charterer with a cargo to be shipped.

Dry brokers typically maintain large databases of vessel positions, cargoes and rates and pay close attention to the direction of the markets so that they can advise their clients accurately on how to maximise profits or minimise expenses. This area of business is often sub-divided into size classes of bulkers - capesize, panamax and handysize are the main sectors. Each sector involves different cargoes, trade routes, owners and charterers and dry brokers tend to specialise in one of these sectors.

Tanker broking

Commodity broking Tanker brokers specialise in the chartering of tankers, which requires an entirely different set of skills and knowledge to dry cargo broking. Tanker brokers may specialise in crude oil, gas, oil products or chemical tankers.

Tanker brokers negotiate maritime contracts which are known as Charter Parties. The main terms of negotiation are freight/hire and demurrage. 

Freight or Hire rate (when a time charter) for crude oil tankers is based on universal calculations assessed once a year know as worldscale. For specialist ships, such as LNG tankers, where the charter market is smaller, prices are agreed at a fixed rate between the parties.
