Stockholm Chartering was founded in 1985 when key personnel in the Swedish shipping community, many with a background from the SalÚn group, convened to fill a void following the turbulent times in shipping of that period.

Over the following quarter of a century the company has been closely involved with companies such as Argonaut, ICB Shipping, Frontline, Sonangol, NITC Tankers, DSME, Wallenius and ACOL to mention a few.

Besides brokering, Ship-owning has been an important part of the company┤s history. STOC Tankers AB was established in the early 2000’s as a fully owned subsidiary to Stockholm Chartering to own and manage tankers. STOC Tankers in turn established the subsidiary Crew Chart Ship Management to manage crewing, technical management and newbuilding supervision for STOC Tankers vessels and selected third party clients.
