V.Group enters shipmanagement partnership with Erasmus Shipinvest

Shipmanagement and marine services giant V.Group has entered into a strategic partnership with international shipping group Erasmus Shipinvest (ESI) for the management of commercial vessels, including the provision of crewing and marine services.

Under the agreement, V.Group will take a ‘double-digit number’ of ESI’s vessels of various types into management, with the first container vessel having entered management earlier this week and an LPG carrier entering management later this month.

These two vessels will be followed by further ESI tonnage during 2024 and beyond as ESI continues to expand its global fleet.

The partnership gives ESI access to Oceanic’s vessel catering and GMT’s crew travel services, membership of V.Group’s supply chain solution Marcas, and proprietary digital ship management platform ShipSure.

“We have been looking for a top-class ship management partner with a global presence to work with, and we are convinced that V.Group’s undoubted reputation as a leading services provider fits well with our ambition and standards to expand our diversified state-of-art fleet across different segments,” said John Su, chairman and CEO of Erasmus Shipinvest Group.

Earlier this month, European investment fund manager STAR Capital and Belgian holding company Ackermans & van Haaren announced that they would be leading a consortium buyingV.Group from Advent International.
