The Company's Handysize and Post-Panamax activities are operated commercially by NORDEN Handysize Pool and NORDEN Post-Panamax Pool, respectively, which also operate vessels from Interorient Shipmanagement, Cyprus.
A modern fleet combined with professional and experienced staff ensures that NORDEN is able to provide its customers with competitive and reliable transportation of bulk commodities world-wide. Customer satisfaction is our most important objective.
NORDEN operates a modern quality bulk fleet. The fleet consists of long-term chartered and owned vessels as well as vessels taken on for short term time charters. See number of vessels here.
The commodities carried include coal, cement/cement clinker, alumina, fertilizer, grain, petcoke, sugar, wheat and steels. In the Handymax segment most vessels are equipped with cranes and grabs, which ensure maximum flexibility for self-handling of cargoes in areas where port facilities are insufficient.
