The two vessels will be used for the company’s river-sea intermodal transport services in China.

The order is also the second newbuilding contract Dayang Shipbuilding since SUMEC joined the restructuring of the yard. Three months earlier, Taizhou Yongan Shipping ordered a 61,000 dwt bulk carrier at the yard.
