About Fractal

Predicting patterns. Advancing our industry. Transforming global trade: the idea behind Fractal began to form in the summer of 2021. Founded in Geneva the following spring, the company quickly positioned itself as an industry leader through its unique ability to identify patterns and recognize shipping trends.

Fractal predicted a strong global economic recovery following the COVID lockdown, which in turn led to a significant upswing in the tanker market.  This foresight led Fractal to become a major industry player.  The company quickly amassed a sizeable fleet: a testament not only to Fractal’s commercial prowess, but also to the faith put in the company by its investors, insurers and peers.

Fractal’s ethos is anchored in a combination of professional rigor and an unwavering commitment to transparency. This dual focus ensures an optimization of both operational and commercial performance. Fractal’s emphasis lies not just in transportation but in a proactive, hands-on dynamic operational strategy. 

This dynamism is further amplified by the integration of cutting-edge software solutions. 

The core strength of Fractal lies in its team. With over 185 years of combined chartering experience, the team possesses the expertise to tackle the complex challenges presented by global energy transportation. All members of the Fractal team work to the very highest ethical standards.

 

Headquartered in Geneva, a global commodity hub, the company efficiently connects with key stakeholders in the oil and refined petroleum sectors. Fractal’s commitment to excellence and innovation isn’t confined to its Geneva base. 

Dubai in the United Arab Emirates is Fractal’s second hub, giving us an important foothold in the region.  Fractal’s presence in Dubai is more than strategic; it’s transformational. It secures access to a rich network of cargo owners and the vast reservoir of human talent unique to the Middle East. Dubai’s meteoric rise in the shipping arena acts as Fractal’s gateway to the expansive Middle East and Far Eastern markets. 

 

Through its forward-looking approach, unparalleled workforce expertise, and strategic global positioning, Fractal stands as a model of contemporary shipping industry excellence. We are committed to operational efficiency, technological prowess, and shaping the industry’s trajectory.
