Mideast Shipping provides a service tailored to the needs of the “Cash Buyer” community within the ship recycling industry. Mideast has significant sector experience and staff who are familiar with both the needs of the Cash Buyer, the Ship Owner and the corporate environment. In addition Mideast is one of the leading cash buyers in the market.

Ship owners are faced with an increasingly regulated market which must be navigated if transactions are to be successfully concluded. For those buyers who require finance Mideast enjoys strong relationships with the leading lenders and a deep understanding of their requirements when making loans. This is combined with excellent relations, built over many years, with the Insurance Sector.

Understanding environmental concerns is a challenge faced by every ship owner - no more so than at the end of a vessels life. Mideast monitors the ever-changing regulatory environment and is able to ensure that clients are in a position to understand and meet their obligations.

The appointment of Steve Wansell, formerly of Bank Mandiri, to open and lead the London office is evidence of Mideast’s ambitions to expand its operations in locations which are important to clients. With Our Head office in Dubai, and the London Operation Mideast plans to open an office next in the Far East.

This combination of skills, experience and contacts enables Mideast to make good on their promise to deliver outstanding client service on every deal.

Looking back over an exciting year, Shabbir Baig Managing Director , expresses his satisfaction:

“I should like to express my gratitude to our clients, broker friends and business counterparts for their support and on-going custom and to my fellow work executive management and not least to the staff for their continued hard work and dedication.”
