Norway-headquartered Norlat Shipping has launched a regular service from BLG’s facilities in Bremen, Germany, to ports on the US East Coast and the Gulf of Mexico.


The service will focus on large breakbulk goods such as forestry and steel products. The first departure from Bremen will be at the beginning of June.

Sven Riekers, head of sales for the breakbulk activities at the BLG Group, said: “Transports to North America have always been the backbone of Bremen’s port operations. We’re delighted with Norlat’s decision to regularly use Neustädter Hafen and offer our established customers a new option. It will massively strengthen our position in this operating area.”

Thomas Johansen, senior chartering manager at Norlat Shipping, added: “Many years of personal experience with the terminal, its workforce and the customers served made this an easy decision. We know the structures at the port and value BLG’s operational competence. These are the best conditions to ensure we’ll be able to offer customers an attractive new service.”
