Brookes Bell’s technical management expertise in action
Brookes Bell’s technical management expertise is borne out by real-world experience and achievements.
For example, at a contractual stage Brookes Bell provided technical input to modifications to the BIMCO Shipman contract, after identifying the key technical needs of the parties concerned.
BIMCO Shipman established many of the fundamental principles of ship management, with the contract being used as a ‘one stop shop’ in respect of most ship management services, including technical and crew management.
It has become a cornerstone of ship management best practice, in part thanks to the input from Brookes Bell.
