Job Description
SAN DIEGO, Calif., December 12, 2013-- Interflot Shipbroking now provides an additional service of freight rate cost evaluation for sea-bound shipments. This service can be utilized by manufacturers, suppliers, and buyers of forest, grain, metals, liquid, mining, and heavy machinery equipment. Ultimately, these charterers—which includes manufacturers, suppliers, and buyers of forest, grain, metals, liquid, mining and heavy machinery equipment products—can put this knowledge to use to reduce their costs for shipments.

This new no-fee voyage evaluation service includes:

• Introducing charterers to new ship owners who offer more flexible terms and rates to the customer
• Matching multiple cargoes to one larger vessel, which can deliver goods faster and for less
• Negotiating better terms, which can reduce costs dramatically
• Creating new avenues for how the responsibility is shared, so charterers—which includes manufacturers, suppliers, and buyers of forest, grain, metals, liquid, mining, and heavy machinery equipment products—can get more protection from unnecessary liabilities
• Discovering if there are ways to reduce current port charges


Interflot works very closely and confidentially with the client to find out as many details as possible about a current route or about an upcoming order. Based on that information, Interflot will research ships, routes, ports, and any other relevant variables regarding the general, bulk, and project cargo shipment. Finally, Interflot will deliver a voyage evaluation cost.

With these detailed voyage evaluations, charterers—which includes manufacturers, suppliers, and buyers of forest, grain, metals, liquid, mining, and heavy machinery equipment products—gain invaluable knowledge associated with their shipping costs. In turn, they can compare it to what they currently pay for their product to be shipped. Or they can use the information to ensure that a quote is competitive in the current market.

The Interflot Difference

In addition to voyage evaluations, Interflot Shipbroking delivers standard shipbroking services, such as finding vessels that are in a suitable position for general, bulk, and project cargo that needs to be shipped. Interflot also offers invaluable knowledge from having years of marine experience. While most shipbrokers have never stepped foot on a ship, let alone working on one, Interflot’s founder and owner, Milen Marinov, worked on ships and managed vessels for 12 years. In addition, he worked as a port agent in Southern California. This means that he learned many of the skills of effective shipbroking by getting out on the ships and the docks. This is in stark contrast to most shipbrokers who learn the trade from working at a desk.

Interflot’s Marinov also approaches each voyage evaluation as an independent project with its own unique challenges and specifications. Most voyage calculations and evaluations are created by following a template with only a few things altered here and there. However, Interflot’s freight evaluations are individualized, including details and specifics that cover the entire period of the shipment’s trip—so the client has the most comprehensive information in order to make good business decisions. In addition, by getting more familiar with the freight rate, manufacturers, suppliers, and buyers of forest, grain, metals, liquid, mining, and heavy machinery equipment products will be able to work more easily and effectively with the ship owner—who will then match the charterer’s needs more specifically.

Ultimately clients save money, since this kind of thorough and accurate freight rate can be used to find the most economical and efficient way of moving forest, grain, metals, liquid, mining, and heavy machinery equipment products from point A to B
