Best possible transport solutions
Rudolf A. Oetker (RAO) stands for quality, reliability, competence and effectiveness. We offer customers the best possible transport solutions for their individual needs when chartering tonnage. Active in tramp shipping since 1952, RAO operates bulk carriers and product tankers of various sizes and specifications all over the world. In the demand-driven tramp shipping sector, there are no fixed routes or sailing times. When and where a particular ship is loaded, and where it sails to, depends on the customer, the cargo and the market. In addition to knowing the market well, RAO has over the years acquired the expertise it needs to provide the right ship at the right place at the ideal time. One genuine competitive advantage is that RAO has gradually built up an extensive network of selected brokers and customers and that it sources its tonnage without exception from respected shipping companies.
