2004 - 2009 New Partner and Consolidation
In 2004, (Ultranav) became partners at Horizon Shipping, giving the company the additional strength and commercial synergies necessary to transform Horizon Shipping from an important operator within the WCSA, to an even stronger and dedicated WCSA player spanning global trade lanes. The Operational and Commercial office is centralized in Miami, Florida through its exclusive general agent, Lot Ocean Transport, Inc.
In addition to its traditional trades to Europe, the Mediterranean, the Black Sea and the United States Gulf, in 2009 the Company started to build on their platform through further diversification with stronger focus on cargoes within the Pacific basin to destinations in the Far East and India. Horizon Shipping has become now the preeminent ship operator of WCSA for raw materials within the mining sector providing customers with a frequent, reliable and flexible service which goes far beyond Ocean Transportation.
