With the establishment of the Company, SCG has created the right set-up to attack new challenges in the market for the upcoming period!


With a team of enthusiastic, motivated and qualified people SCG is 24/7 busy with the management of the operations of the vessels. The recruitment and training of crew, planning of repair jobs, conducting maintenance works on the vessels, attract well-paid cargoes and conduct financial and cash management is a selection of our daily jobs.  We are convinced that the quality of our management services will increasingly be distinctive for attracting well-paid cargoes.


We focus on quality, communication and performance.

Harbouring all the necessary disciplines under one roof makes it possible to manage the vessels in cohesion between the different disciplines with respect to a good and transparent communication. Short lines, an accessible management and the ability to speak each other on their responsibilities are factors which continually allow us to improve the cohesion between the several disciplines. That is the strength of our House of Shipping.
