Latsco has reportedly contracted three 64,000 DWT ultramax bulk carriers at Oshima Shipbuilding, Japan. The vessels will be managed by MARLA Shipmanagement INC.
Following the Latsco Group’s first move in dry cargo in 2016 when it acquired four second hand supramaxes, the company is now expanding its dry cargo fleet further.
The move is in accordance with Latsco’s strategic plan of further diversifying and having a stronger presence in the dry bulk segment, while Latsco now controls a fleet of LNG, LPG, tankers, bulkers and containers.
This historical milestone marks the company’s first dry bulk newbuildings in Japan in its 70-year history.
