Shipbroking v2.0

Not 3.75% but EUR 750.00 per fixture!

What We Do Our service

About Blue Ocean Brokers BV

Our company is based in Rotterdam, acting as cargo brokers for our charterers. We break the traditional conventions in shipbroking by charging a fixed fee instead of a percentage. Saving on costs to shipowners resulting in lower freight!

Shipbroking at a fixed fee of EUR 750.00

We offer our shipbroking services for intra-European shipments at a fixed fee where our competitors all work on basis of a percentage. 

Do the math

A voyage of EUR 100,000.00 at 3.75% commission means the broker gets EUR 3,750.00! We charge EUR 750.00 for the same service, resulting in EUR 3,000.00 difference! 


Since decades, if not centuries, brokers get paid a percentage of the freight. This remuneration method still persists although the time changed drastically (f.x. introduction of internet resulted in less work load and cheaper means of communication). 

Shipbroking 2.0

Our approach is truly beneficial to Charterers, Shipowners, but also for ourselves. That is why we call our approach Shipbroking 2.0 


 Our philosophy with a fixed fee for our services will result in lower seafreight rates. This approach helps charterer and shipowners. Also, it  increases the quantity of fixtures which result in a sustainable profit.
