The name Odin Marine symbolizes the ultimate in marine services, synchronizing the complexities of global shipping in the timely and orderly manner on which so many of our clients seek, expect, and rely. This results from our vast network of contacts within the chartering and ship owning communities, which is very much relationship driven. The strong relationships we have developed over the years separates us from others and has afforded us with the ability to develop a great depth of knowledge in vessel chartering, products handling, port operations, maritime regulations, and access to world fleets.
Although the Odin Marine Group has expansive services throughout the world, we pride ourselves in never forgetting that each client must receive personal service. As a private company, we are uniquely equipped to provide our clients with the flexibility they require with comprehensive tanker brokering and consulting services ensuring safe, timely and cost effective solutions to their needs.
A History of Service to the Shipping Industry
Founded in 1976, the Odin Marine Group commenced its activities primarily as a crude oil broker. Over the years it stayed true to its legacy of service to the shipping industry when it decided to aggressively expand into the chemical, products, and edible oil sectors. As the company grew and expanded, it began to flourish in the new and emerging markets. This required services that did not exist in the industry at the time and Odin capitalized on this by offering services before anyone else in the industry did. As a rising and innovative leader, Odin Marine expanded its global reach by starting new offices in Asia, Europe and the Middle East, and offered innovative logistical services and shipping solutions that still separate us from our competition to this day. We have never rested, nor ever will rest, in searching, isolating, and putting into action services the industry will demand. History clearly shows our strong track record for being industry leaders, and we plan on continuing this insightful approach to all our business affairs. This attitude is ingrained in our culture and is what has launched Odin into the forefront of the industries we support.
