Tonnage Procurement

The Shipholding division is dedicated to developing and maintaining the core fleet in close coordination with our cargo customers, long-term tonnage partners and shipbuilding partner with the goal to always ensure best possible long-term tonnage portfolio for the platform.

 

The core fleet continues to be the back bone of the Ultrabulk long-term commitment to cargo partners within our main trade segments. It is imperative for Ultrabulk to deliver reliable, safe and cost-efficient services to our long-term partners. To deliver on such ambitions, Ultrabulk maintains strong focus on quality in the full supply chain including ships, shipyards and tonnage partners.

Ultrabulk collaborates closely with shipbuilders and shipowners to ensure that all vessels are designed as the best in class and always proactively comply with known new regulations of compliance for the shipbuilding industry.

Ultrabulk is a strong supporter of initiatives to reduce environmental footprints as set out by the authorities. We take a proactive role in working with the authorities as well as our tonnage and cargo partners to find the optimal and cost-efficient solution to the closely approaching IMO 2020 low sulphur emission regulations as well as other known future requirements.

Considerable capex investments will be required in the near future by both existing and new tonnage owners to meet the new environmental requirements enforced on the shipping industry. This challenge can only be solved if we work closely with existing and coming long-term tonnage partners to ensure all vessels contracted comply with present and future rules and regulations.

2017 was a challenging year in all segments where Ultrabulk is active, but also a year of expanding our fleet. In addition to our historically active segments, we established a stronger foothold in the MPP segment by committing to take five modern MPPs into our fleet from close tonnage partners. 

Ultrabulk continued to pursue its planned fleet development programme. In 2017, Ultrabulk took delivery of five new vessels to our fleet, mainly as physical tonnage hedge against the company’s forward cargo commitments. Deliveries were a combination of owned and long-term chartered vessels and included Handysize, Supramax and Panamax vessels. Additionally, four newbuildings are scheduled to be added to our core fleet by the end of 2020.

For future tonnage needs, Ultrabulk will retain focus on executing through a stringent due diligence process with our close partners in the shipbuilding industry, with partners known for being reputable and able to build optimally designed vessels on time, to the highest standard of quality and who give innovative focus to features aimed at assuring safety of the crew, vessel and cargo as well as environmental rules and regulations expected to be implemented in the future.
