Simpson Spence Young Tankers division has brokers worldwide working on behalf of most of the world’s oil companies, traders, shipowners and operators. Our scale and size, along with our independence, means we can offer the kind of scope that our clients need to help make their businesses more successful.

Our tanker team handles chartering requirements on a global basis for spot, contract of affreightment and time charter, for the carriage of crude oil and refined petroleum products in all sizes. We combine market-leading research with global reach and market expertise to provide outstanding service and 24-hour coverage across the globe.

A pro-active approach to broking allows us to advise our clients of future market trends, developments and opportunities as well as anticipating their own growing and changing requirements. 

Simpson Spence Young recognised the potential for a rapidly expanding US market and in 2008, through the acquisition of Islandia Chartering, we established SSY Tankers New York LLC, now a ‘cornerstone’ of our Global Network. In 2010 key personnel were relocated to Singapore acknowledging and anticipating further growth in far Eastern domiciled clients and the need for a high concentration of experienced senior brokers in the region.

We pride ourselves on the emphasis we place on commercial and operational support to our clients. With our office network spanning all international time zones, our team offer a seamless approach to vessel and cargo chartering and operations.

Working closely with our brokers is a dedicated team of market analysts that offer tailor-made consultancy services, covering commodity demand and trade forecasting, earnings forecasting and the identification of investment opportunities, as well as a number of respected publications.
