Benefits of becoming a member of the Baltic Exchange
The Baltic provides a free dispute resolution and debt recovery service to members, helping to recover millions of dollars in late or unpaid commissions freight and arbitration awards as well as resolving disputes amicably, often negating the need for further legal action.
All members are entitled to have their input into the future development and direction of Baltic freight market information through the Advisory Councils that we operate for the market. Relevant members also have input via the FFA Brokers Association and panellist groups.
From individual presentations, to an international lecture series, professional development and in-depth academic-taught courses – the Baltic is committed to providing its membership with opportunities for on-going learning and education.
Baltic expert witnesses are appointed by solicitors and those in the legal community to give evidence at court hearings and arbitrations worldwide involving freight and FFA market disputes.
Buying or selling a vessel involves large sums of money changing hands and transactions are often extremely time sensitive. The provision of a trusted and independent Escrow service is a vital component of any sale and purchase agreement.
