About us

Crux is a boutique Ship Brokerage based in Dublin, Ireland. The company was established in 2018 with the aim of servicing a niche shipping sector long ignored by the larger shipbroking firms. We provide a personal and dedicated service where owners and charterers can expect the highest of standards.

Whilst we believe in disrupting the status quo, we also understand the importance of heritage and tradition in the shipping industry. That heritage is ingrained in the foundations of Crux Shipping & Trading Limited and its founder, with the Hvide family's history based almost entirely in shipping and aquaculture. Our business culture and values were established through our history and insights handed down through the generations.

" I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky,

And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by " - John Masefield


The core component of our success is the company's fundamental belief that we have to provide the best service, in every aspect of our business. This means approaching problems creatively, fairly, and thoughtfully in order to achieve the best outcome. This also means providing our clients with the most accurate and current information on the markets we cover. 

We also understand that a successful ship broker is direct and straightforward in what they can achieve. We do what we say and, as a competitive independent ship broker, we understand how important trust is in the industry.
