Change is coming at the world’s largest pool for panamax bulkers, following Japanese trading house Marubeni Corp’s acquisition of a 25% stake in dry cargo operator Klaveness Dry Bulk.

The two companies have been joint partners in the Baumarine by MaruKlav pool for the past three years.

The new shareholder will provide “a fresh pair of eyes” when considering pool partners, according to Michael Jorgensen, managing director of the pool and head of Klaveness Dry Bulk.
