Italy’s d’Amico International Shipping (DIS) has taken full control of four MR tankers formerly owned in a joint venture with giant trader Glencore.

The Milan-listed owner said it now has 100% of Glenda International Shipping, spending $27.4m on Glencore’s 50% slice.

Glenda’s four vessels are the 47,000-dwt Glenda Melissa, Meryl, Melody (all built 2010) and Melanie (built 2011).
