S4M stands for “Solutions for Maritime” – it is one small sentence explaining the large amount of activities and services we are providing to the global maritime industry. Driven by people with a true passion for shipping and many years of working experience in different fields, we try to make a difference with our ability to think “outside the box”.
Established in the Netherlands in 2016 as a part of the S4M Group of Companies, we we have rapidly evolved from a traditional shipbroking company to a multi functional shipping entity and maritme logistics experts.
We are active in deep sea and coastal shipping activities around the globe but particularly in Europe and West Africa, with focus on oil and chemical tankers and containerised goods.
Today we are holding a strong presence in West Africa with offices in Cameroon, Nigeria and Ghana as part of our group of companies. Our portfolio is not only listing oil major companies but also smaller trading houses and African government entities.
Acting as commercial managers, S4M is the right partner for ship owners, bareboat charterers and time charterers. With years of experience in the market we trade your vessel on the (niche) global spot markets for the best revenue.
As part of the S4M Group of Companies, our company is active as consultants and port managers for small ports. The main focus is on development, efficiency and safety. With our experience gained in the West African market we are specialised in management of complex logistics.
Chartering and brokerage
We are able to provide “door-to-door” deliveries of your ship on a tailor made basis whereas our company will arrange the full vessel chartering services on behalf of your company. Various trading houses are a part of our portfolio.
The team members of S4M Shipping are skilled professionals with experiences gained from different parts of the industrie as employees of ship agencies, vessel owners, broker shops and large commodities traders.
The unique combination of personalities and knowledge, together with a shared passion for maritime, is our drive to serve the market.
Shipping is a challenge and no shipment is the same. The world is changing but human kind is always depending on fast maritime logistics.
Efficiency, reliability and “thinking outside the box” is what we do and what we offer.

We must free ourselves of the hope that the sea will ever rest. We must learn to sail in high winds.
- Aristotle Onassis
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
- Mark Twain
There is nothing absolutely nothing half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats.
