We complement our roster of advanced cargo-handling vessels with a fleet of Handysize gearless bulkers. Operating in dedicated trades on the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence Seaway in North America, the vessels are Seaway size, maximizing lift through the waterway’s locks and channels.

Our Great Lakes bulk carriers provide a more energy-efficient and environmentally friendly alternative for transporting grain compared to road or rail, resulting in reduced air pollution, carbon emissions, and alleviated road congestion.
