African Services

In 2017, Ultrabulk opened an office in Cape Town, South Africa, to further support the business in the area while keeping a special focus on cargo and contract procurement in and out of the Southern African continent. The concentration is on full cargo and parceling operations out of the region for bulk and break bulk cargoes.

We offer freight solutions for bulk and break bulk parcels of any size out of Southern Africa to Asia, Europe and North/South America. With a combination of owned and time-chartered tonnage we can offer frequent sailings to many destinations with utmost flexibility on cargo sizes and frequency.

With a full commercial and operational team based in Cape Town and Richards Bay, we do the full operational supervision of every vessel loading or discharging in Southern Africa.
