Client-Centric Services

Bernhard Schulte Shipmanagement (BSM) provides client-centric services through 11 regional Ship Management Centres across the world.

Each Ship Management Centre operates within the company's framework of values and in line with our quality and safety standards. At the same time, we ensure that a dedicated and highly professional team manages assigned vessels to the full satisfaction of our customers.

Due to our large number of offices, we manage a relatively small number of clients and vessels per location. At the same time, we also provide the benefits of being a large organisation, for instance though economies of scale to achieve competitive OPEX through supplier arrangements.

Our global footprint has allowed us to build close relationships with important local stakeholders, including local authorities, insurers, classification societies and many more, in major shipping hubs.

World Class Standards

All BSM Ship Management Centres are benchmarked to international standards with ISO 9001, ISO 14001, ISO 27001, ISO 45001 and ISO 50001 certifications.

The ships in our fleet are managed with world-class management systems for quality, environment and information security; when your vessel is with a BSM Ship Management Centre, rest assured we will manage your vessel to the highest standards.

Our Ship Management Centres are continuously working to improve by getting certified for more ISO standards such as energy management, and occupational health and safety.
