With the addition of the M/V New London Eagle, the Company's fleet is now comprised of 47 vessels, including 12 Ultramaxes acquired over the last 14 months.

The Company transports a broad range of major and minor bulk cargoes, including but not limited to coal, grain, ore, pet coke, cement and fertilizer, along worldwide shipping routes.
