Posted on: 19 May 2022

Braemar, a leading global shipbroker, today announced that it has signed a seven-year contract with the UK’s Ministry of Defence (MOD) to provide worldwide shipbroking services across all commercial maritime sectors.

Under the contract, Braemar will provide the MOD with access to its market-leading and highly regarded S&P, chartering and research departments across Braemar’s 14 global offices. The seven- year contract encompasses all aspects of S&P, as well as spot and period chartering for routine and emergency response requirements globally.

Andy Liddell, Head of the SALMO team within Defence Equipment and Support, the MOD’s procurement organisation, said: “I am pleased to confirm we have awarded the contract for shipbroker services to Braemar ACM Shipbroking following a competitive tendering process. This is an important contract which will provide a range of services to UK Defence, and we look forward to working with Braemar over the next seven years.”

Edward Molyneux, Braemar’s Global Head of Offshore Energy Services, commented, “The Ministry of Defence has exceptionally high standards and expects its partners to consistently deliver value for money. I’m therefore enormously proud that the Ministry of Defence has awarded Braemar the contract, which is a clear reflection of the breadth and depth of our global expertise and our reputation in the shipbroking sector.”

Adrian Wooldridge, Braemar’s Head of Projects, commented, “A contract of this breadth and depth is as complex as a symphony, and that requires a whole orchestra to do it justice. I’m very pleased by the multi-desk collaboration and sharing of expertise across the numerous functions that we operate in. Success is best when it’s shared, and it was individual commitment to the group effort that enabled us to win this contract.”
