Thanks to the close commercial relationship consolidated with main shipowners and maritime operators over the years, we make available our valuable shipping background, mostly chartering ships ranging between 45,000 dwt to 63,000 dwt, for maritime transportation of all cargoes supplied to our partners. Employing bulkcarriers with the particulars and specifications needed in each case. According to customer’s need and ensuring the transport of goods for a safe and timely delivery according to the most demanding requirements. 85,000 tons of clinker being the largest tonnage so far loaded for one single customer.
As such, milestones in sea transport have been numerous and varied. Not so much because of the evolution of the types of ships, which obviously has occurred, but the larger distances and situations that vessels had to steam through.
Transport of cement is a special key factor in competitiveness. Inland displacement has a very high impact and determine the economic conditions in which a product can be shipped overseas if the plant is not at the seaport or nearby. But sea transport becomes essential when it comes to reaching certain destinations, especially for the transport of bulk cement, or in the case of the Clinker, to connect far away ports by employing Panamax or Ultramax vessels.
