CMB has been involved in the dry bulk sector for over 30 years through its wholly owned Belgian subsidiary Bocimar International.
Bocimar's fleet currently consists of 16 wholly or partially owned Capesize vessels. The partially owned vessels are in joint ventures with foreign shipowners such as the Wah Kwong Group (Hong Kong) and the Oak Maritime Group (Taiwan). In addition, Bocimar International's fleet also includes about 20 chartered-in vessels (11 capesize, 6 panamaxes and 3 handymaxes). The Bocimar Group also has 10 new vessels on order from Asian shipyards.
Bocimar International's business consists mainly of the transport of dry bulk goods, especially coal, ores and grains.
Over the years, Bocimar has acquired an outstanding reputation with 'blue chip' charterers. Among other things, this is reflected in Bocimar's portfolio of contracts with customers from the steel and energy sectors. To optimise relations with the Japanese steel industry and Japanese charterers, Bocimar has an office in Tokyo that is operated under the name CMB Japan.
