Pleiades’ principals draw on over 50 years of continuous experience of purchasing, successfully managing and operating merchant vessels of various types and sizes in both good and poor freight markets.
The company is highly regarded across the industry for its ‘hands-on’ management style, prudent operating policies, rigorous tanker fleet maintenance, safety standards and its long-term commitment to capably serving the global oil transportation sector.
Initially the Pleiades group pioneered orders from the mid-60s forward for the Japanese-built 15,000 dwt Freedom type multi-purpose dry-cargo vessels, and later for the Freedom MK II with its substantial Greek design input.
Apart from well-judged secondhand purchases, the group also took deliveries of bulk carrier new-buildings in Denmark and South Korea, and had by the late 1970s developed into one of the largest operators of multi-purpose general cargo vessels in the world, with a fleet of 34 vessels of some 1.5m deadweight tons carrying capacity.
