SOME SEE A NEW SHIP. WE SEE THE PEOPLE WHO WILL DELIVER IT SAFELY!
WELCOME TO OUR WORLD OF GLOBAL SHIP DELIVERY
Ship delivery is our specialty. And our passion. There are only a few players active in the global playing field of ship delivery. And TOS is one of them! We have been for years. Because we know what it takes and we always deliver. No matter what. From strategic relocation, purchase of existing and new vessels or to moving your vessel in a one-off operation. Your destination is our challenge! We understand this special world full of detailed preparation and planning, professional weather forecasting, technical and nautical knowledge, teamwork, problem solving capabilities and taking on responsibilities while enjoying the adventure! It is a particular world with its own specific laws and regulations, where safety and getting the job done are crucial. We work globally, with our head office in Rotterdam and local offices worldwide. That makes us the perfect partner to deliver your ships anywhere around the globe.
Safety first! Our piracy and risk assessment
The constant threat of piracy in certain areas of the world has meant a radical change in recent years in the way we prepare and implement vessel deliveries. TOS issues a customised ‘Piracy Plan’ for every vessel, route and client, based on the right balance between safety and costs. In this context, we perform a risk assessment of the route and the vessel. If necessary, we deploy equipped security staff. In those instances, TOS works closely with the best professional security companies.
WE TAKE CARE! WE MOVE YOUR ASSETS SAFELY AROUND THE WORLD
We are experienced in the relocation of all types of vessels. For an all-in price and with clear terms and conditions, we can take care of flag state registration, certification, ISM and instruction of the new crew in preparation of handing over the vessel. We have developed a training programme for professionals for vessels equipped with ASD propulsion, which enables us to give the crew a tailor-made training. A training on location using our portable tug training simulator is optional. Due to the dynamism and hectic conditions inherent to ship delivery our experienced company lawyers take care of the specific requirements of the countries you operate in. This includes primarily maritime law, together with labour law, tax law, social security regulations, etc.
We deliver your ship. We minimise costs and maximise efficiency whereby personal contact and the human touch remain central. It is exactly that which makes our service stand out and of the highest quality.
WE HAVE ADVENTUROUS JOBS FOR YOU!
We offer responsible professionals a full range of ship delivery assignments around the world. Each year we sail dozens of ships, ranging from tugs to cargo and passenger ships, to various destinations. We want to get in contact with adventurous seafarers with great improvisation skills.

KEEP ON SAILING
He has sailed for years as captain. He could already retire to enjoy undisturbed days at home, in a picturesque town in the water-rich province of Groningen. Yet, a sailor at heart, too much rest doesn’t sit well with him. Keep on Sailing is his life motto and, together with TOS, he travels around the world and loves the challenges that come with each new ship delivery.
Last year TOS was awarded the project of assisting Smit Lamnalco with a series of mobilization voyages of five impressive RAstar 3400 tugs. Captain Frans Karmelk was responsible for transporting two of the five vessels: SL Curtis Island and SL Boyne Island.
