The BDO Shipping team delivers a wealth of knowledge and expertise to clients in the shipping industry. The merger of BDO UK and Moore Stephens LLP has extended our reach and brought new expertise and resources to add to our shipping experience. We continue our longstanding association with the shipping industry and place customers at the heart of what we do.
The extent of our experience is demonstrated by a net book value of vessels acted for in London that exceeds US$10 billion. We work with BDO international member firms and offices in all of the main global shipping locations.

Opcost is a unique ship operating costs benchmarking tool. It includes all major sectors and currently covers operating costs for 26 vessel types.
