Sinotrans asks CSC Phoenix to change name

Chinese domestic dry bulk shipping operator CSC Phoenix has received a letter from its former parent, Sinotrans & CSC Group, asking the company to change its name.

Sinotrans & CSC sold its entire shares in CSC Phoenix to Tianjin Shunhang Shipping in 2015 and the company has been using the same name since. Sinotrans & CSC claims “CSC” is a registered trademark of the group and is requesting CSC Phoenix to remove it from the name.

Last month, CSC Phoenix reported capacity shortage issues as it failed to extend charter contracts for 15 bulkers with Sinotrans & CSC.
