The sale includes existing long-term contracts associated with the ships with M/s. Oldendorff Carriers GmbH & Co. KG Germany which is one of the largest dry-bulk shipping companies in the world. Each year, Oldendorff carries about 320 million tons of bulk and unitised cargo around the world and performs 14,000 port calls in 125 countries.
