ESL Shipping Ltd is the leading carrier of dry bulk cargoes in the Baltic region. ESL Shipping’s competitive edge is based on its ability to secure product and raw material transportation for industries and energy production all year around, even in difficult weather conditions. The shipping company loads and unloads large ocean liners at sea as a special service. ESL Shipping Ltd has been in business more than 70 years and is a subsidiary of Aspo Plc.
At the end of August 2018, ESL Shipping completed the acquisition of Swedish shipping company AtoB@C Shipping. In mid-January 2021, AtoB@C Shipping operates 30 vessels in 4,000-6,000 dwt segments. The combined fleet of ESL Shipping and AtoB@C Shipping consists of 52 vessels with cargo capacity ranging from 3,000 to 56,000 dwt with total deadweight capacity of 477,000 tons.
"Together we form a strong Nordic shipping company that is customer-driven. It has strong shoulders to build future success determinedly."
