Company Services

Probulk Shipping & Trading offers full ship management services which range from expert technical support, the administration of all crew matters, handling of freight and chartering requirements all through the maintenance of accounting and financial matters. Due to the stringent regulatory and ever-evolving shipping environment it is to the owners’ best interest to consolidate all departments required for the management of a ship in a single management company. Here at PROBULK we believe this is the only way quality management services can be truly offered.

PROBULK is in every position to provide for all required services, from A to Z, to any owner or aspiring owner. However, if our customer requires only partial or selective management services, we are here to accommodate any of those specific needs and we will do so at the highest level of quality and efficiency.
