Eagle Bulk Shipping Inc. (“Eagle” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: EGLE) is a US-based, fully integrated shipowner-operator engaged in the global transportation of dry bulk commodities.
Headquartered in Stamford, Connecticut, with offices in Singapore and Copenhagen, Eagle focuses exclusively on the mid-size dry bulk vessel segment and owns one of the largest fleets of Supramax/Ultramax ships in the world. The Company performs all management services, including: strategic, commercial, operational, technical, and administrative.
Supramax/Ultramax vessels are considered the most versatile amongst the various dry bulk ship types due to their size and specifications. With a deadweight (“DWT”) size ranging from 50 to 65 thousand metric tons and a length of approximately 200 meters, our vessels can accommodate large cargo quantities and call on the vast majority of ports worldwide. All of our vessels are also equipped with onboard cranes and grabs, giving the ships the capability to load and discharge cargoes without the need for shore-based port equipment/infrastructure.
The Company provides transportation solutions to diverse customers, including miners, producers, traders, and end-users. Typical cargoes carried include both major bulk cargoes (coal, grain, and iron ore) and minor bulk (fertilizer, steel products, petcoke, cement, forest products, and more). Please see the Industry page for a more detailed description of dry bulk ship types and cargoes.
