The Operations staff informs the captains of our vessels about the cargo and planned voyage. They negotiate worldwide with agents and stevedoring enterprises on port call, loading and discharging costs. Loading and discharge of different types of cargo are organised in direct cooperation with the stowage planner. The staff members of the Operations Department directly monitor proper and professional loading, stowage and discharge procedures on site.
Our operators calculate fuel consumption. Fuel is ordered, route planning carried out and bunkering of vessels organised on the basis of their calculations, special technical features and the dimensions of the vessels. The operators maintain a constant exchange of information with Fleet Management, Chartering, the Crew Department, Purchasing and, of course, the top management of the Beluga Group.
