JB Marine first opened its doors for business in 1995, and since then has built an enviable reputation within the shipping market for dependability and trust.
The company is run by the Directors, John Bradley and Joe Bradley (unrelated!), who each have over 30 years’ experience in tanker chartering, oil & gas trading, refining, bunkers and ship sales. This experience has taught them that bunkering and other aspects of shipping are never stand-alone processes; rather they all play a part in the wider context of a ship’s existence.
It is their unique ability to bring their extensive and wide-ranging background knowledge to every client request which enables JB Marine to provide such a comprehensive, proactive – and highly-regarded – service.
At JB Marine we take great pride in the fact that even though we are a small operation, our client base is global and far-reaching, covering owners of VLCCs and other tankers, including chemical and gas carriers, bulkers, container lines and offshore supply vessels. These owners range from multi-national and state-owned oil companies to small, family-run shipping concerns. Many of our clients come from earlier chartering connections, and as they have moved on and up, they’ve taken us with them to their new ventures.
We are also proud – and hugely protective – of our status as a totally independent broking house; one of a very few worldwide. This status gives us a unique ability to conduct business anywhere in the world, with anyone in the market. It means we can offer our clients far more choice than they might receive elsewhere, and choice usually means increased efficiency and savings. It also gives us as a company the facility to react swiftly and effectively to new business opportunities.
With JB Marine, the client always comes first, and whatever your query, be assured that it will receive our full attention until a satisfactory conclusion is reached.
