What we do

Strand Shipping’s core business and focus is shipbroking.

Our fleet is counting around 20 ships, and we’re always aiming for renewals and increase in both numbers and tonnage.

The main business of Strand Shipping is shipbroking, but we can also offer ship clearance with agents on site in both Mo i Rana and Glomfjord, and remotely act as agent in most of the other ports in Norway.

AbbreviationS in shipping

An abbreviation (from Latin brevis, meaning “short”), is a shortened form of a word or phrase. In Shipping terms, there are many abbreviations, making it hard for outsiders to understand the meaning of it.

Back in the days, the need for keeping the length of communication offshore down, was imperative in order to save time and later money, when the telex was used.

As many of these abbreviation are still in use today, you can here find an overview containing the most used terms.

Many thanks to Ketil at Rimship, for sharing his knowledge and abbreviations with us.
