Project Advice and Leadership

    At RLA, research is at the core of everything that we do and is fundamental to our success and long standing reputation. Not only do we use research-based insights and information to drive our own decisions, we also provide our clients with ad-hoc research (covering all commercial shipping sectors) to assess the competitive, regulatory and dynamic landscape of individual markets and regions in the maritime sector. Our clients approach us for everything from simple market profiling to sectoral studies and detailed customer targeting.


    A crude oil producer with no previous experience on shipping its’ product seeks to gain a better understanding of the international oil and tanker markets together with the contracts associated with these sectors.


    RLA’s consultants are working as part of the Client’s in-house team to provide guidance, assistance and training on all aspects of the international oil and tanker markets, advising on best practice and what we would expect to see in the associated sales contracts and charter parties. We are also assisting in the contractual arrangements and logistics involved in moving the crude oil to the export terminal.
