How it works


What’s a Trading Desk

The Trading Desk is the best way to set up your work environment if you are a Shipbroker, Carrier, or Trader. The split-screen design allows for setting up a personalized environment with Cargo and Fleet-related data. This could include open market data, or proprietary data from emails (if email flow is connected) and data from other interconnected sources (ERP, platforms, operational software, etc).

Each user is free to choose whether his Cargo or Fleet positions are shared with the Market (other SHIPNEXT users), shared with companies on their White List, or stored privately.

Use Case

  • Carriers or Shipping Companies

    use the Trading Desk to work with incoming freight requests, cargo and orders, which they can study, handle and offer on. Offers can be sent both on spot, as well as future shipments and COAs. Cargo-to-Ship and Ship-to-Cargo matching is used to find employment for their own fleet, or, replacement and alternative fleet for cargo which can not be carried by own vessels.
    Carriers use Trading desk to filter out the Cargo, Orders or Fleet they would like to concentrate on.
    Creating and Applying filters on Cargo, Orders and Fleet also tags incoming emails.
  • Shipbrokers

    use the Trading Desk to build internal collaboration, exchange comments and tag incoming Cargo and Fleet positions. In their case the Trading Desk can be used to hold freight negotiations simultaneously on both sides, one with the Charterer/Shipper, and the other with the Carrier, directly or indirectly through brokers who stand behind open fleet positions. Personal data related to fleet data, cargo data, freight ideas and hire ideas could be stored for further internal use.
    With the help of the instant cargo-to-ship matching, Brokers can build a more efficient work with any cargo regardless of its size, type, shape or destination.
  • Traders and Shippers

    use the Trading Desk to search freight for spot shipments and collect offers for future shipments & COAs. The Trading Desk is also used for freight tenders, allowing Traders and Shippers to create their standard terms and conditions, and reuse them for new shipments, or even apply their customized Charter Party (Contract) form.
    The Trading Desk can be used to search for spot replacement vessels or liner services.
