Hyundai Glovis is diversifying its services and will deploy its fleet of pure car and truck carriers (PCTC) to cater to large-sized, breakbulk cargo.
The South Korean shipping line referenced a recent request from a global energy infrastructure company to transport components for thermal and wind energy power plants to Baltimore in the USA and Bremerhaven, Germany.
It added that it is proposing its fleet of vehicle carriers as an alternative option for shippers, who Hyundai Glovis said are facing difficulties with the supply and demand of ships as a result of the pandemic – particularly in the container shipping segment.
Hyundai Glovis added that it is determined to increase the volume of breakbulk cargo it handles this year compared to 2020 by actively targeting new shippers who have not used car carriers. Company resources will focus on winning orders for cargoes such as transformer equipment, plant equipment, and large-scale broadcasting equipment.
