About us

ESL Shipping 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. At the end of June 2021, AtoB@C Shipping operates 35 vessels in 3,000-6,000 dwt segments. The combined fleet of ESL Shipping and AtoB@C Shipping consists of 51 vessels with cargo capacity ranging from 3,000 to 56,000 dwt with total deadweight capacity of 473,000 tons.

Experienced crew on board and personnel ashore together with the versatile fleet built for the demanding conditions of the Baltic Sea guarantees our customers quality of service they can rely on in all conditions. Ice-strengthened fleet can safely call at most of shallow drafted ports in the Baltic Region. All ships have cranes on board which enables independent cargo handling both at ports and at open sea.
