Nordic Bulk Carriers is a dynamic dry bulk shipping company with a business approach as modern as its fleet. Its special expertise is ice class bulk carriers.

Nordic Bulk Carriers reached another milestone in 2010 when it became the first operator to use the Northern Sea Route. NBC shipped iron ore from northern Norway to China, across Russian sea, on a historic voyage that opened a new sea route for the future as well as new business opportunities for the entire shipping industry. The Northern Sea Route Project reflects Nordic Bulk Carriers’ position and strength as a world-leading operator of ice class bulk carriers.
