Dry Cargo Agency: Delivering commodities to the world's markets

Dry bulk

Dry bulk shipping is big business. The dry bulk industry plays an important role in the Hong Kong economy. Since the early 70s-80s, commodities from raw materials like iron ore, coal, cement, sand aid cargo and logs to high valued mines, agricultural produce, fertilisers and cereals have been carried by barge or smaller size vessels for transshipment to mainland China. After the upgrading of port facilities and infrastructure, many of the Chinese ports such as Nansha, Zhuhai, Qinzhou, Tieshan, Zhanjiang and Fangcheng can accommodate larger carriers from handy, panama to capesize.
