This segment is the largest in terms of number of vessels and turnover, and amount to about half of all Wilson’s activity.
The segment is well diversified in terms of transported goods. The largest volume commodities are fertiliser and coal, but shipments also include considerable quantities of minerals, steel and grain.
The two largest customers in this segment are Elkem and Yara, but the customer structure has become internationalised in recent years in line with Wilson’s increased share of voyages between foreign ports. The fleet in this segment has undergone considerable renewal in recent years, and Wilson owns the majority of vessels that operate in this segment.
