Swire Bulk is a leading vessel owner and operator specialising in transporting cargoes in the dry bulk segment, operating a fleet of over 150 vessels predominantly in the Handysize and Supra/Ultramax sector. Its fleet, comprised of both owned and chartered tonnage, is backed by a highly experienced team operating across nine commercial offices around the world. The team is committed to serving its diverse customer base, providing them with expert market knowledge and insights into the dry bulk commodity trades.
Swire Bulk has one of the most modern and fuel-efficient fleets on the water. Its owned fleet ensures that it has the flexibility and technical proficiency to deliver freight contracts safely, reliably and professionally. Swire Bulk aims to deliver market-leading, innovative and sustainable freight solutions to its customers, and build high-valued partnerships with its core customers.
Established in 2012 as the dry bulk trading division of The China Navigation Company (CNCo) (now known as Swire Shipping), the business has grown rapidly to establish a strong reputation as an industry and customer-centric leader in the geared sector. In 2021, Swire Bulk separated from CNCo and today, Swire Bulk is a privately held company headquartered in Singapore and the dry bulk trading arm of the multinational Swire Group.
Swire Bulk continues to expand its footprint and market presence in tandem with a strategic newbuilding programme that will see six new Handysize vessels joining its fleet in 2021. With firm commitments out to 2041, a diversified cargo base and a balanced vessel operating mix, Swire Bulk is well-placed to be a long-term partner of choice for its customers.
