ESL Shipping has successfully completed the sale of supramax vessels Arkadia and Kumpula on 11 June 2024. The vessels were sold to companies belonging to the Turkish shipping and logistics group HGF Denizcilik Limited Sirket. The sale price was USD 37.1 million.

The sale of Supramax vessels is part of ESL Shipping’s strategy to concentrate on developing its partnership strategy with current and future customers, focusing on Handysize and Coaster vessels.
