Shipping

Over the past years our dedicated shipping experts have built long-term relationships with various first-class ship owners and brokers that provide the best freight opportunities to charter vessels under different types of charter parties: from spot shipments to long-term contracts of affreightment and time charters. We handle over 1500 shipments per year, mostly via the main sea routes of Asia, the Mediterranean Basin, and Continental Europe to their destinations in Africa, the Middle East, and South America.

Holcim recently joined the Sea Cargo Charter. We are committed to playing our part for a more sustainable shipping industry. CO2 tracking is a first critical step.
