Dome was started by three classmates from New York’s Maritime College at Fort Schuyler. After graduating together, they pursued different paths both afloat and ashore before crossing paths in Manhattan, where they were all working in the merchant shipping industry in various capacities. Together they saw an opportunity to position a competitive ship brokerage shop in the U.S. market.
Over the past two decades, Dome has grown both in size and cargo volume, and maintains full commercial control over a fleet of both U.S. Flag and Foreign Flag vessels. Dome has carved out an enviable position as an active player in various niche markets.
Dome Chartering & Trading Corp. is a privately held small business per NAICS code 483111 (under 500 employees) and we are U.S.-Citizen majority-owned.
