Asia Break Bulk and CSL Shipping sign Strategic Partnership

500t loading capacity MPP vessel to be jointly operated

COLI Group’s subsidiary Asia Break Bulk (Singapore) has entered a Strategic Partnership with CSL Shipping (China). CSL & ABB will work closely together to market CSL’s multipurpose carrier ‘Jian Yang Hua Qing’. The vessel has 2 x 250 mt cranes for loading breakbulk, heavy lift and project cargo and is active for both companies as of now.

Felix Peinemann, Managing Director of the COLI Group, states: “This partnership will expand our footprint in the MPP market. COLI is steadily expanding its activities to offer clients more sailing possibilities and increase its footprint in the Chinese market. Recently, we already added the ‘MV ABB Victoria’ to our fleet, an F240 type multipurpose carrier. With this additional vessel we can entertain an even  bigger variety of cargoes and projects up to 500 tonnes lifting capacity. We look forward to a fruitful collaboration with our partners at CSL Shipping.”

MPP operator Asia Break Bulk and Shanghai-based CSL will jointly operate the vessel, enabling both companies to gain additional market coverage in the MPP segment and expand their availability for their global clientele. To offer clients flexibility, any commercial enquiry can be handled by CSL’s Shanghai office, ABB’s Singapore team or COLI Group’s HQ in Hamburg.

Jack Lee , Managing Director at CSL Group, says: “This partnership will strengthen our global network, so that we can offer better services to our customers. The commercial, operations and engineering teams of both companies will work in close cooperation to ensure the highest quality and standards for our joint clients. Indeed, we see this step as  a big milestone for CSL.”
