Company

Our Philosophy

We, at Lotus Shipping, see ourselves as a group of people united by our love for the sea, our care for the ship, our dedication to the seafarers, our eagerness to serve our customers and by the pride we take in safely and successfully transporting the cargoes entrusted in our hands.

In serving these shared principles, we are determined to persevere relentlessly and to work tirelessly in getting better and better at what we do; we are determined to become and to remain the safest and the most efficient operator of chemical tankers without sacrificing sustainability or competitiveness. 

What makes us special?
The expertise built over many years of specialized trading in chemical cargoes, the flexibility guaranteed by our manageable size and a robust management structure ensuring accountability and knowledge-sharing across the company and its vessels.

We love our work.
We are committed to becoming one of the best at it.
