    Handy - Handymax

    10,000-50,000 DWT

    Handysize vessels are smaller geared vessels with a deadweight carrying capacity generally between 10,000 and 35,000mt (metric tonnes) and range in length from 130 to 150m with a 10m draught. They typically contain five(5) cargo holds for diversified storage with four(4) on-deck cranes. Their shallow draught and small size allow them to operate in most ports across the world.

    Handymax ships are a bigger version of Handy bulk carriers. These ships are typically 160 to 190m in length and 35,000 – 50,000 DWT with five(5) cargo holds and four(4) cranes, and with a loaded draught of 11 to 12m. These bulk carriers are well suited for small ports with length and draft restrictions.

    These vessels are primarily used for carrying a variety of dry cargo such as ore, coal, cement, phosphate, finished steel, wooden logs, fertilizer and grains etc.

    Supramax - Ultramax

    Supramax vessels are popular due to their optimal size, which makes them a workhorse for transporting bulk commodities including but not limited to ore, coal, cement, steel products, fertilizers, concentrates, minerals and grains etc. These vessels are typically between 50,000 – 60,000 DWT. They have five(5) cargo holds and four(4) deck cranes with a lifting capacity between 25 and 40mt with most vessels fitted with their own grabs. The modern vessels are constructed as double-hull vessels to provide additional safety to the vessel and environment. These vessels are very popular due to their larger cargo carrying capacities and onboard cargo handling flexibility. Their favourable size allows them to trade in a much wider range of world ports and terminals.

    Ultramax bulk carriers are medium-sized geared vessels. Larger than Supramax vessels, they have a deadweight capacity generally between 60,000 to 66,000mt. These vessels are considered to be an upgrade of the smaller Supramax carriers. They are fuel-efficient and emit lower CO2/tonne-mile.

    Panamax - Post Panamax

    60,000 - 100,000 DWT

    The term ‘Panamax‘ is a vessel type with a Length OverAll (LOA) of 225-229m, with a loaded draught of 13 to 15m and beam of or less than 32.26 m, and refers to design size limitations imposed by the Panama Canal locks. Its deadweight ranges from 60,000 to 80,000mt with seven(7) cargo holds. They are generally gearless that is without cranes/gears or their own cargo handling equipment. They generally carry bauxite, coal, grain, ore, phosphate, minerals etc.

    Post-Panamax bulk carriers as the name suggests are designed to transit through the new locks of the Panama Canal. The deadweight of these vessels ranges between 90,000 to 100,000mt. They measure typically 229m to 240m in length with a draught of less than 15m and have seven(7) cargo holds. The maximum beam of a vessel to transit the Canal is 49 m, though the new Panama locks can handle ships up to 54-55 m in breadth.

    100,000 – 125,000 DWT

    BabyCapes are a sub-category of Cape size vessels, with a deadweight of 100,000 to 125,000mt. The loaded draft is between 13.5m to 14.8m. Due to shallow draught, these vessels are among the most efficient in the market, because the costs of carriage per tonne of cargo are much lower than a Supramax or a Panamax and yet they can enter ports up to 14.8 metres in depth. They generally carry bauxite, coal, ore etc.
