Our Businesses

Dry Bulk Supply Chain

Dry bulk supply chain is one of our key business segments and our commitment to serve the needs of Asia’s rapid economic growth and industrialisation. We focus on the major trade routes that supply coal and iron ore to the fast growing economies in Asia.

We help and partner with our customers to develop and implement customised, cost-effective and sustainable logistic and supply chain solutions that will enhance their competitiveness in a dynamic market.

Our comprehensive suite of logistic services span the entire supply chain from source to market. We provide services that comprise barging, ocean shipping, transshipment, ports, stockpiling, blending and local distribution through our offices, joint venture companies and strategic alliances in different parts of the world. We handle many different commodities that include coal, iron ore, grains, fertilisers and general cargoes. Being involved in the coal and iron ore trading, our trading arm is also able to help customers source for these resources globally.

To ensure better control over the logistics and thus operational efficiency, we invest, own and/or operate a number of critical assets such as ports, stockyards, floating loading facilities, dry bulk carriers of different sizes, and tugs and barges. Many of these are mobile assets that can be deployed to work in different parts of the world, even in challenging terrains. Our infrastructure investments are also a testament of our commitment to provide the best logistic services.

We bring our wealth of maritime experience and expertise to serve our global customers. Our established customers include major power plants, steel mills, coal and iron ore producers, fertiliser and cement plants, and small and medium-sized industrial users worldwide.
