Our Strategy
  • Targeting balanced and profitable long-term growth

    Thenamaris’ strategic objective is to achieve balanced and profitable long-term growth for itself and its principals. To accomplish this target, the company’s strategic plan focuses on key initiatives that facilitate our ability to outperform our competitors around the world irrespective of market conditions.

    We aim to add value to our principals through effective fleet management solutions, from technical management and crewing to chartering and voyage execution, with an unrelenting focus on operational excellence. We leverage analytics to make better business decisions, and rigorously apply this approach across the company. We are committed to pursuing innovative technology to drive commercial benefits, reduce our GHG footprint, and excel in global ship management.

  • Managing risk and focusing on results

    Our commercial strategy employs a combination of spot and time charters to capture upside opportunities and mitigate downside risks. While spot market returns are less stable, such charters enable owners of ocean-going vessels to realize the benefits of important cost-saving initiatives, particularly in the area of energy management.

    We are keen to build long-term relationships with our charterers. We see them as partners and take on their challenges as our own, as we aspire to provide them with consistently excellent and reliable ship management services.

    Our operational and commercial strategies are complemented by thorough risk management and performance management initiatives, enabling us to continuously monitor and control the associated risks and results of the efforts we undertake to achieve our strategic objectives.

  • A proactive approach to safety and ongoing investment in people

    Safety and quality are fundamental to everything we do. Our efforts ensure that we not only meet all compliance standards, but also exceed them in many instances. And whilst shipping is an energy-efficient means of transport, we work proactively to help ensure the sustainability of the business by reducing its impact on the environment.

    Shipping is a people business. Therefore, we continuously invest in the development and growth of all our employees, as we recognize that their contribution is fundamental to the successful implementation of our strategy.
