Bulk carriers amount to about one third of the world’s merchant fleet. These vessels are designed to carry dry, unpackaged cargos in large quantities, like coal, ore, cement, grains, dredgers or steel pipes – cargos whose containerized transportation would be highly in-economical.
The companies of the Hartmann Group manage a bulker fleet of various sizes and classes, with the vessels offering capacities from 7,800 to 170,000 dwt. Our ships are equipped with boxed holds and double skinned. Depending on their area of operation, they are either gearless or geared, the latter disposing of grabs for quick loading/discharging.
