Why Charter A Vessel?

Expertise and Experience

Chartering a vessel allows you to select the most suitable vessel type, size, and features to accommodate your unique cargo requirements.


Chartering allows you to tailor your shipping schedule and routes to your needs rather than relying on fixed-liner services.


Chartering can often be more cost-effective when shipping large volumes or irregular freight than booking space on a scheduled ship

Privacy & Security

With a chartered vessel, your cargo is the main focus, reducing the risk of damage or loss associated with shared space on regular shipping routes.

Different Types Of Vessel Charters

At SLG Logistics, we offer a range of vessel chartering options to accommodate the diverse needs of our clients. Our experienced team works closely with you to determine the most suitable type of charter for your cargo requirements.

Voyage Charter

A voyage charter involves hiring a vessel and crew for a single voyage between two ports. This option is ideal when you have a one-time shipment or require a flexible shipping schedule. With a voyage charter, you pay for the vessel’s cargo transportation from the loading port to the destination port, with the shipowner responsible for the vessel’s operation and expenses.

Time Charter 

A time charter means you hire a vessel for a specific period of time rather than for a single trip. This benefits companies with regular shipping routes within ASEAN, allowing for greater control over the vessel’s schedule and operations. The charterer pays for the use of the ship and its crew daily or monthly, while the shipowner remains responsible for the vessel’s technical management and crew.

Demise Charter 

Also known as a bareboat charter, a demise charter involves hiring a vessel without its crew. This option gives whoever is chartering complete control over the ship during the hiring time. Demise charters are suitable for organisations with their crew and ability to manage the ship’s operations independently.

Vessel Chartering FAQs

What factors should I consider when choosing the right type of vessel charter for my cargo?

When selecting a vessel charter, consider factors such as the type and volume of your cargo, the required shipping schedule, your budget, and the level of operational control you need. Our experienced team can help you evaluate these factors and recommend the most suitable charter option for your requirements.

The duration of the chartering process can vary depending on factors such as the complexity of your requirements, the availability of suitable vessels, and the time needed for negotiations and contract preparation.

The documents required for vessel chartering may include a fixture note or recap summarising the main terms, a charter party contract detailing all agreed terms and conditions, a Bill of Lading, cargo manifests, and any necessary certificates or permits. Our team at SLG Logistics can guide you through the documentation process and ensure you have all the required paperwork.

The safety and security of your cargo is our priority. We work only with reputable and experienced shipowners who maintain their vessels to the highest standards. Our team also ensures that all necessary safety measures and insurance coverage are in place before the start of each charter.
