Dedicated to protecting Pool Partners’ assets and interests.
Pool and Commercial Management
Heidmar is the original commercial management brand in the tanker space and was the first shipping company to develop a digital solution, eFleetWatch, designed to build trusting and transparent relationships with ship owners. This kind of innovative forethought continues to be deeply embedded in the core of Heidmar's values and vision. With almost 40 years of experience, our success comes from our ability to be agile, lean, and well-positioned to respond to both the opportunities and the risks that exist in the tanker space.
We aim to provide existing and future pool partners with exceptional returns on their assets while working alongside them to prepare for what we expect to be a dynamic and challenging market in the immediate future. Longer-term, we believe that Heidmar will provide ship owners with a strategic and forward-thinking commercial trading platform in the tanker space. By managing owner-barriers to entry through flexibility on working capital, time charter options, FFAs and strategic digital solutions alongside our pursuit of pool-complimentary projects, we remain the original commercial management platform that drives the most value for ship owners.
With a strong belief in relationships and transparency along with our highly experienced teams, we are able to adjust our offerings to meet the evolving needs of the industry and to protect our pool partners' assets and interests.

Operations and Claims
Heidmar’s Operations team is proud of its track record with long-tenured and dedicated staff of industry professionals with almost all being ex-Captains with tanker sailing background. Heidmar is particularly proud of its best in class record for claims collections in terms of quantum collected against invoiced and as importantly the time taken to collect. Responsible for the daily operations of Pool Partners assets, our Operations Team remains focused on the correlation between quality voyage performance and higher returns for our Pool Partners.
