A Family Culture

Relationships with all parties – customers, seafarers, office staff, partners – are important to us at BSM. We proactively live a family culture as we are a family business. This means we are mindful of taking care of and maintaining the value of our customers’ vessels while caring for our staff. The high employee retention rate and our long-term experience result in high vessel availability and sustainable OPEX.

Safety, Reliability, Efficiency

We deliver safe, reliable and efficient ship management services through an international network of 11 ship management centres, 28 crew service centres and 5 maritime training centres. We manage a fleet of over 670 vessels, with a pool of more than 25,000 seafarers and 2,000 shore-based staff to provide a high quality service for all types of vessels.

We offer a holistic suite of complementary maritime solutions that can be tailored to suit each customer’s needs. We are part of the Schulte Group that was founded in 1883 and benefit from our parent company’s experience of over 140 years in the shipping business.
