With effect from 1 September 2013 Nicholas F Fisher assumed responsibility as Chief Executive Officer of Masterbulk and for the Dry Bulk Group of Companies.
January 2013 was the start of WLS´ regular liner service from EC South America to Far East. A long term contract for haulage of pulp from Brazil to China and Korea quickly triggered off a second contract for carriage of granite in blocks to China. The service will initially be run with one vessel per month until the second major pulp contract starts in January 2014, when frequency will be increased to two vessels per month.
The start-up of the Brazil/Far East service is a major achievement for WLS as the long hauls are the ideal employment for our larger vessels. After completion of discharge in Far East, the ships will be employed in our Far East/Europe service, or, alternatively in our Far East/USA service.
