Norden shifts exposure from tankers to dry cargo
(Posted on 17/12/20)
In response to current market conditions, NORDEN is continuing to shift its exposure from the tanker segment to dry cargo.
Over the past few weeks, NORDEN has sold two tanker vessels – an MR tanker NORD PEARL and a Handysize tanker NORD BUTTERFLY.
Meanwhile, the Company has purchased two second-hand dry bulk carriers – one Supramax vessel to be delivered later this month, and a Kamsarmax to be delivered in April 2021.
The trading activities are in line with NORDEN’s asset trading strategy and active management of its market exposure.
“For the next 12 months, we see more favourable market conditions and potential upside in the dry cargo market, as the world economy gradually recovers following Covid-19”, said Jan Rindbo, CEO, NORDEN.
“Our asset trading strategy means we continually look for opportunities in the market to optimise our fleet, and it provides us the flexibility to adjust our ongoing exposure towards either dry cargo or tankers, depending on the given market developments.”
The new vessels will join the core fleet of NORDEN owned and leased tanker and dry cargo vessels under the Company’s Asset Management business unit.
Norden operates in dry cargo and tanker trades. The Dry Operator business unit serves customers with logistical optimisation of vessels and cargoes. 93.95 Million tonnes were transported in the past year with 2,526 voyages on 223 operated vessels.
