Business Activities



The Capesize bulk carrier plays a vital role as a large tramper in efficiently transporting vast loads of iron ore and coal necessary for steel production which is vital for economic development.

Our Capesize bulk carrier fleet has been developed as the main carriers for formar Sumitomo Metal Industries, Ltd., the third largest steel maker in Japan. Our fleet now ranges from 170,000 to 250,000 DWT and transports raw materials for international steel mills as well.
In particular, we began doing business with large Chinese steel mills in the mid-1990s and were the first Japanese shipping company to secure a long term contract.

In recent years, newly developing countries such as India and China see the securing of raw materials as vital for further economic development and this trend is seen all around the world. We allocate our fleet of cost-competitive Capesize bulk carriers to our business in order to better respond to new needs for transport arising upon entering a new age.
