Established in 2010, with its operating office in Athens, TCM constitutes a joint venture involving the Tsakos and Schoeller Groups. It combines and augments the considerable management and operational expertise and professional skills of the two groups, both in ship management and client service.
Tsakos Columbia Shipmanagement (“TCM”) S.A. provides technical management, along with operational and crewing services, to a diversified fleet of approximately 80 vessels comprising tankers (including shuttle tankers and LNG gas carriers), as well as container and dry cargo ships with an aggregate capacity of about 7.0 million deadweight tons. TCM builds upon its founders’ excellent reputation while striving to provide the highest quality services to owners of ships trading all over the world.
Committed to deliver first class shipmanagement services, TCM continually reviews the performance of its fleet and takes bold initiatives to ensure its steady improvement with a view to fully satisfy its customers’ expectations. Towards such an end, in 2014 it established the “Maria Tsakos” TCM Academy, a training centre, which comprises a state-of-the-art type A (highest) Kongsberg Bridge Simulator together with Engine Room and Cargo Handling Simulators and other training facilities.
