Taiwanese bulk shipping operator Wisdom Marine is expanding its fleet with a fresh order for four handysize bulk carriers split between Japanese players Imabari Shipbuilding and Namura Shipbuilding.

The 40,000 dwt quartet is worth around $116m, the company said in a Taiwan Exchange filing. No further details or delivery dates have been revealed for this order.
