Company profile

SwissMarine was established in 2001  as a freight operator, offering transportation services on capesize and panamax size vessels to mostly European based coal power stations and steel mills as well as miners for their raw material transportation needs.  Over the years, the company has significantly expanded both in terms of size but also in its product offerings.

In 2015 it transported 122.5 million metric tons of cargo worldwide. Since 2011  the company has established a shipowning arm investing in secondhand and newbuilding tonnage.   

In the panamax and handymax/supramax sector, our focus centers on the inbound coal trades into the West Coast of South America and the coal export out of Colombia and the  Baltic area mainly into Europe.

On the capesize sector, our focus also mirrors our smaller bulks in focusing on the west coast of South America ( focusing on outbound Iron Ore ) as well as coal export out of Colombia but in addition, being  one of the largest worldwide carriers in this segment, we have a strong presence in almost all trade flows and are a major transporter to some of the world s largest coal and iron ore users and producers

We  are a privately held company and a member of the baltic exchange.  Our banking relationship is with Standard Chartered, London branch and ABN-AMRO.
