April 11 - RollDock Shipping BV has appointed Shearwater Shipping and Chartering Limited as its exclusive agent in the UK and Eire.

This is Shearwater's second appointment in less than a year. In August 2012, it was named as exclusive agent to BigLift Shipping and as agent / preferred broker for Spliethoff.

At present RollDock's fleet consists of two multipurpose ships, RollDock Sun and RollDock Sea, built in 2009 and 2011 respectively, but the company also has a busy newbuilding programme.

Since its creation in 1992, Shearwater has grown into a well-known brokerage company in the London and worldwide markets, whilst being an active member of the Baltic Exchange.

The company has been successfully involved in many aspects of dry cargo and sale and purchase, but has specialised in project and super heavy lift business.
