Gram Car Carriers has wasted no time in finding term work for one of two ships acquired two days ago from F Laeisz as part of its Oslo listing.

The Norwegian owner paid for the 5,000-ceu Passama and Passero (both built 2012) in shares, making the German seller the group’s biggest shareholder on 25.5%.

Now Gram has secured $27,000 per day for the Passero with an unnamed major Asian operator over three years, starting in May.
