One prime example of this approach is Clipper’s steel services. Since 1992, we have gained unique insight into transportation of steel across the Atlantic and we apply this knowledge in spin-offs serving clients in Brazil, the Mexican Gulf and Asia. Likewise, we have deep sector expertise within fertilizers, grain, logs, and petcoke and we collaborate closely with leading players in these industries.
We have long-term partnerships with clients, co-investors, technical and commercial managers, and we take pride in the fact that many partnerships go back 25 years or more. We value long-term relationships over short-term gains, and we always look for ways to make it easier for customers and partners to do business with us. This thinking is well aligned with our legacy: We are founded and owned by a family, and the family remains 100% committed to developing Clipper Bulk. We are in it for the long haul.
While we have a passion for long-term relations based on deep sector expertise, we strive to be hands-on and responsive in our daily operations. We are keen on contributing to rapid decision-making and problem solving.
