Moving on from pure shipbroking the company started acting as managers, time charterer and operator of coastal size vessels of 1000-5000 dwt trading mainly in the Black and Mediterranean Seas, West Africa, Continent, Baltic and Far East. Later on two own vessels of this size were purchased and successfully managed and operated.

Since 2003 the company started chartering in handy size bulkers in the range of 20,000-45,000 dwt trading on world wide basis. In the year 2007 Cosmos Shipping acquired two vessels of 25,000 dwt, providing full commercial management, crewing and technical management. Currently, the company is acting as ship manager of handy bulk carriers and is focused on expanding its fleet in the dry bulk sector.

Full range of ship management services is provided, including commercial operation, technical management and crewing.

The importance of an effective quality and safety management system is recognized and the company is ISO and ISM compliant.


Ship Managment

The smooth running of each ship is overseen by the operations department responsible for liaising with Agents, Shippers and Receivers, communicating with vessels at sea, preparing and transmitting voyage instructions to the Master, cost planning and control, managing disbursement accounts, supplies, handling claims and disputes.

Operations department works closely with the Technical, Crewing and Chartering departments to ensure that the highest standards of vessel maintenance and safety as per Flag and Class requirements are achieved, accidents are avoided, and that necessary routine maintenance does not interfere with the commercial operation.

Here in the Operations departments rests also the responsibility for the ISM and ISPS compliance and regular auditing.


Operation

Chartering department is responsible for negotiation of employment and conclusion of contracts for the handy bulkers under the company’s management and maintains close relations with cargo owners, trading houses and large brokerage network to ensure that best employment for each vessel is negotiated.

The state of the market and trends are regularly monitored through specialized intelligence publications, as well as through the personal contacts and touch of the brokers.

The company is experienced also in chartering in handy bulkers and operating them on the spot market. Volume of cargo carried by managed and chartered vessels during the last 6 years amounts to more than 2 million tons, covering all main types of bulk cargo such as grains, fertilizers, coal, minerals, iron ore etc.

Employment of the vessels is worldwide but the geographical areas, where most of the activities are concentrated, are the Atlantic basin, Continent, Baltic, Mediterranean and Black Sea.

Brokerage for third parties fleet and/or cargo and/or S&P is also part of the everyday business of the chartering department, serving not only handy size sector, but also covering coastal trades.


Chartering

Technical department as part of company fleet management takes care of technical management, all repairs and technical supplies for owned, managed and chartered fleet.

ПОЛИТИКА ПО ОПАЗВАНЕ НА ОКОЛНАТА СРЕДА

Ние, зачитаме факта, че опазването на околната среда е един от най-важните въпроси в управлението на което и да е предприятие. В нашите дейности, свързани с корабен мениджмънт и опериране, чартъринг и брокераж, хидротехнически и драгажни дейности, се придържаме към концепция, конкретната цел на която е намаляване на вредата за околната среда. Ние поемаме ангажимент за чиста и здравословна околна среда, като се задължаваме да я предпазваме от всякакви форми и видове замърсяване, провокирани от нашата дейност. Ние сме убедени, че екологосъобразната политика допринася за нашата конкурентоспособост и носи полза за нашите клиенти и служители.



За постигане на горните цели, ние се ангажираме да:



  • Спазваме националната и международна нормативна уредба, свързана с опазването на околната среда.
  • Вземаме предвид екологичните фактори, когато планираме и вземаме решения.
  • Използваме безопасни технологии и експлоатационни методи не само в нашата основна дейност – оперирането на кораби и драгажни дейности, но също във всички придружаващи и поддържащи дейности.
  • Работим непрестанно за повишаване на ефективността на нашия екологичен мениджмънт.
  • Въвеждаме нови технологии и оборудване, което да гарантира безопасно опериране и намаляване на вредното влияние върху околната среда.
  • Стараем се да намаляваме отпадъците и да предотвратяваме замърсяването преди да е причинено.
  • Следим нашите екологични показатели, редовно правим оценка и сме подготвени за аварийни ситуации.
  • Почистваме остатъчното замърсяване от минали операции по икономически ефективен начин.
  • Придържаме към идеята за икономия на енергия във всичките наши дейности и полагаме всички усилия с оглед смекчаване на последствията от глобалното затопляне.
  • Вземаме предпазни мерки срещу потенциално замърсяване на околната среда с опасни вещества.
  • Повишаваме нивото на ангажираност на нашите служители и членове на екипажи към политиката за опазване на околната среда и подобряваме техните знания в сферата на опазването на околната среда.
  • В този смисъл, ръководството на КОСМОС ШИПИНГ провежда активна и целенасочена политика в следните направления:

  1. Извършване на периодичен екологичен преглед, свързан с анализ на въпросите по околната среда и въздействието върху нея при изпълнение на дейностите на дружеството и определяне, контрол и управление на аспектите на околната среда.
  2. Провеждане на комплекс от дейности по опазване на околната среда, които са насочени към предотвратяване замърсяването на околната среда, към нейното възстановяване, запазване и подобряване.
  3. Контрол върху използването на природните ресурси, необходими за изпълнение на производствените дейности от дружеството.
  4. Управление на оценените аспекти на околната среда, свързани с въздуха, водата, почвата, персонала и обществото.
