OUR DUTIES

Ship Owning

Our main business concept is to achieve long Time-Charter contract with reliable Charterers. We are only focused with new buildings.

When we build new vessels, we thoroughly study the whole project scheme.
We look at the price of the vessel, hire rate, Time Charterer Period, operational costs and management costs including the dry docks.
We also strategically study the various financing options.

Policy towards technical management
For owning the vessel in long time Charterers,
For tankers, we contract with third party technical managers.
For dry bulk carriers, we perform the in-house management.

“Safety first” is our forever motto
However, we believe that cost control is the most essential key for sustaining the safety.
We standardize the annual budget for technical managements.
However, we never allow the reputation of “spend all since it is within the budget” to all of our technical managers.
We save if we can save.
We spend if we have to.

It is very essential to construct the reliable and proactive accounting team.
It is important to closely monitor and analyze every expense that our technical managers spend.
As owners, we also get involved in purchases and supplies, repair plan and dry docks.
This is in order for us to verify that the provided prices are fair and reasonable.

Moreover, we must make sure that every expense is used in correct way.
Our goal is to try saving the costs, so we can utilize the saving for other maintenances and upgrades.
This is our policy in our high-quality management.

Daily operations We directly get involved in the daily operations.
We do not fully depend on the technical managers.
We interact with Charterers on owners matters, such as cargo issues, Bills of ladings, Letters of Indemnity, off hire and any other matters.
We also highly value the time.
We totally understand how important it is for Charterers and cargo owners to receive the timely response from owners.
We are not perfect, but it is our policy to be as cooperative as possible to Charterers at all times.

Lastly, we truly thank to all of these business partners.
Blue Wake Shipping can exist today because of the continuous cooperation and support from the business partners.

We always endeavor to be one of the reliable and long trusted ship owners for all partners.


Mind of Safety

In our business, the sustaining the safety is the most important tasks of all, but in fact it is also the most difficult task in the marine industry.

Maintaining the safety can lead us to, protecting the nature, preventing the unnecessary losses and the most important of all, achieving the long terms trust and credit from business partners.

When it comes to cargo trading, our utmost priority is the safety of the crew, the cargo and the vessels.
In order to do so, it is important to employ well-trained seafarers who are honest and make the correct judgements.

We also value the communication skills of each employee in the office, the ship crew, and third-party contractors.
We appreciate the direct integration with Charterers.

Human errors, mechanical problems and accidents do happen.
Our goal is to build relations with one another to be able to communicate closely to declare the facts, and try to solve the problem at the earliest stage, rather than hiding the problem.

We are not perfect, but we can always try to improve and be the next level.

We are always keen to take the step to the future, with “mind of safety”.


In-House
Technical Management

Blue Wake Shipping also performs the technical management for own bulk carriers.

We run our own DOC/SMS system.

We study the safety management in daily basis and putting our effort to maintain the safe operation of our vessels.

Our management team is consisted with main 3 cores. There are Marine department, Technical department and Accounting department. Each member in the management team performs the multi-tasking with various responsivities.

Marine department looks after the daily operation, cargo issues, crew management, passage planning, risk assessment, and contracts.

Technical department is responsible for any machinery and technical matters, purchases/supplies, DOC/SMS manual improvement and revisions, audits, quality controls and drydocking planning.

Accounting depart is independent and core of the company to maneuver the financing and payment verifications and controls.

We believe that the close communication is one of the essential key in the safety management system. In daily basis, we deal with so many people and so many companies.

On board, we have more than 20 crews on each vessel. We try to connect well with each vessel, try to be as open as possible for any discussions and concerns. The crews are provided by the contracted manning companies, in which we require them to maintain high quality seafarers. We constantly visit their facilities and check on their quality management.

There are many other companies, such as MPA, class, machinery makers, suppliers and venders. We also value the close communication with these companies who relate with our business. Each company have their own professions. We are always in the advantageous position to be able to “ask” any questions and obtain any advices that we require. In this way, we can try to locate the problem at the earliest stages, discuss, prevent and rectify the problems. The most importantly, we can reflect this whole process in our safety management system in order to improve our company SMS.

In the management team, we are always open to discuss and share to any concerns and topics to one another. We dedicate the work and responsiblities to each department, but we try not to set boundaries among the different departments. We always situate our member to be able to talk to each other and discuss. We always avoid make the conclusion with only one-sided idea or thoughts. We look into the topics with various angles and idea.

We are still in the learning process. We are always hungry for learning to improve our management system. We keep growing to the next level not only as the ship owners, but also as the technical managers. This is Blue Wake Shipping Safety Management Team.
