Rongtua Shipping Group, a Singapore-based logistics company which mainly operates business in China, has entered the shipowning business with an order for two 61,000 dwt bulk carriers at Jiangsu Dayang Shipbuilding.

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

Rongtua Shipping currently operates with chartered vessels.

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.
