Global Shipping sector continues to realize investments in shipping business despite the economical crysis on trading all over the world.
Many Shipping companies tried to take advantage of the circumstances in the economical crysis. One of the most important Turkish Marine Trading companies, Akmar Shipping also did the same and has bought a 2003 built bulk carrier "MV Nord Ocean" from Danish Company Norden Shipping.
With this vessel, Akmar shipping lifted their DWT capacity to 300.000 Mt and number of the vessels to 6 in the fleet by registering MV Nord Ocean as MV Oktem Aksoy. This was followed by "MV OZGUR AKSOY" as the 7th vessel in 2011 and in early 2012, the number of registered ships will rise to 8 and capacity will be close to 450.000 mt.
