Milan-headquartered transshipment logistics specialist Shi.E.L.D. Services has secured a contract to manage and operate a transshipment vessel in Guinea to service the growing mineral export sector in the country.
The company will be managing the cargo transfer ship Bulk Borneo for Jakarta-based bulker owner Asian Bulk Logistics (ABL).
“We are delighted to have been selected by ABL to provide transshipper services for this exciting new project in Guinea and we look forward to more opportunities in the future. We are now transhipping bauxite at a net daily rate of 35,000 ton per day, from a vessel that was designed to handle coal. Following the arrival in Kamsar of CTS Bulk Borneo, we were able to carry out all the modifications needed to shift from coal to bauxite in one week,” said Corrado Cuccurullo, CEO of Shi.E.L.D. Services.
Shi.E.L.D. Services specialises in operating transshipment vessels where there are depth restrictions alongside major bulk exporting ports.
