Come meet us @ Breakbulk Europe

Breakbulk Europe is one of the most important venues for us to meet and talk to our business contacts. Many of our most experienced charterers and operators will attend the show in Bremen, Germany this year. Come meet us, have a chat, and let us help you improve the logistics of your cargo.

We have, as always, an easily found stand in the exhibition hall. You will find us at stand number 1119. Enter through the doors directly to the right of the registration desk, and go straight ahead. You will find us at the corner just after Port of Hamburg (see map).

At our stand you will be met by a group of dedicated and highly skilled people from G2 Ocean. Read more about them at the bottom of this page. Feel free to talk to us. If we do not know you, we are thrilled to get to. If we do know you, we love to meet old friends again. Talk to us about our services, trades, what cargoes we can handle, how we do things – and what makes G2 Ocean an obvious choice for many, many people who require high quality shipping solutions.

The ships

We have a fleet of 130 ships. Most of these are what we call Open Hatch vessels – a type of multi purpose vessels.The beauty of these vessels are that the holds are formed more or less as a shoe box. That makes it easy to load and discharge. And you will never have to worry if your cargo will fit through a small opening. If your cargo can fit in the holds, it can be loaded. And if it is too big for the holds, we will securely transport it on deck. We have for years transported those long wind turbine blades to dusins of win turbine projects, safely placed on the deck of one of our Open Hatch ships.

The cranes

Our ships all have their own cranes, being able to load and discharge your cargo without help from the outside. Depending of ship type, each crane can lift up to 75 metric tons – or up to 150 metric tons if we lift in tandem. But that does not mean we will not be able to handle anything heavier. If needed we have a great relationship with all the ports we visit, and shore cranes are often a good solution to uphold the safety and quality.

The equipment

We know that lifting and storing cargo the wrong way, may harm the cargo. That is why we have developed a whole range of equipment to make sure that even the most fragile of cargo is unharmed and safe while travelling with us. And we never stop trying to find better ways to do this. We use our own workshops as well as partners to continuously improve.

The cargo

Over the years we have developed expertise within transporting a wide variety of cargo. Paper, metals, pipes, orange juice, wind turbine parts, yachts, trucks and all kinds of other project cargo. We believe that if something can be lifted, it can be transported by us.

Have a look at some of the different cargoes we have transported.

Our systems

Travelling the oceans is a challenging task. Storms and bad weather may affect when the ship arrives. We believe we owe you, as our good customer, insights in where your cargo is and when it is expected to arrive. Regardless of weather. That is why we have developed systems for monitoring ETA, notifying you on arrival time – and giving you the possibility to check the situation yourself. And our developers have made a lot more systems to make shipping with us easy and hassle free.

Please have a look!

Where we go

Unlike conventional bulk, our Open Hatch ships travel the world in defined routes, with predefined ports. You will always know which ports the vessel will visit, and when it will be where. You will know when your cargo leave the home port, and when you can expect it to arrive. That makes it easy for you to plan ahead.

This interactive map show all our trade routes world wide.

Our partners

We believe working together is better than trying to do everything on your own. That is why we have a vast network of agents and operators all around the world. And we do not force you to talk to us alone, but would love for you to contact our agents directly. Using the trades map or our search engine, you will always get info on who is the local agent where you are planning to ship your cargo.
