Clarksons Acquires Safe Harbour Tanker Chartering
Provider of integrated shipping services Clarksons Platou announced that it is planning to acquire Safe Harbour Tanker Chartering, a Connecticut-based shipbrokerage and marine consultancy firm.
Safe Harbour Tanker Chartering has been in operation since 1989, and is based in Monroe, Connecticut. They are a well‐established ship broker, with a primary focus on the edible oils sector specialising in veg oil exports from the United States and South America to the wider Americas and European markets.
They also have a presence within the biodiesel sector, as well as iso‐tank and flexi bag chartering amongst other activities.
The company is led by Jim Weinberg and his team, all of whom, upon completion of the deal, will become part of the Clarksons Platou Specialised Products business, adding an eleventh office to our network.
The acquisition of Safe Harbour is a key step in the development and growth for Clarksons Platou Specialised Products, and represents an important milestone as we forge a path forward into the future.
"Jim, and his team, bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to our business, and will help us maintain the continuous expansion of our ‘best in class’ service offering to our global client portfolio," said a statement.
