UBC and Baltrader form Cement Carrier Alliance

Hamburg-based Baltrader and Philadelphia-based United Bulk Carriers (UBC) will cooperate as the newly launched Cement Carrier Alliance (CCA).


The aim of the new cooperation is to offer a wider range of vessel sizes to existing and new customers while enhancing marketing to current and developing markets. With a current fleet of 15 specialised, modern, self-discharging cement carriers, the alliance consists of 3,000 to 15,000t dwt vessels.


“As two independent partners motivated by the same objectives, we have teamed up for the marketing of our respective cement carrier fleets,” CCA said in a statement.


Baltrader and UBC said that they will remain independent entities, each operating out of their own offices while offering continuity in their customer relationships. CCA will be jointly represented by the UBC office in Philadelphia and the Baltrader office in Hamburg.


CCA has launched a website to showcase its diversified fleet to its clients and share relevant industry news.

Baltrader, part of the BRISE Hamburg Group, operates 10 of its own pneumatic self-unloading cement carriers.


UBC is a member of the Hartmann Group and claims to have one of the most versatile fleets in the world for the bulk trades. It operates four different classes of bulk and pneumatic vessels ranging from 8,400 to 38,000 dwt. With two sizes of pneumatic cement carriers consisting of a series of sister ships, UBC said its customers are offered flexibility to suit their trades.
