The British shipping company Lomar Shipping, which also owns the Bremen-based tanker company Carl Büttner, is pressing ahead with its exit from container shipping with further sales.

Lomar has now announced that four more freighters have been handed over to their new owners[ds_preview].

The transactions total almost $39 million and are part of the plan to “further transition our fleet from the container sector to bulk carriers and chemical tankers”, according to Lomar.

The sister ships “Velika Express” and “Mirador Express”, built in 2002 with a capacity of 3,237 TEU each, as well as the 5,047 TEU ship “OOCL St. Lawrence”, built in 2005, were handed over to customers of Conbulk Shipmanagement from Greece.

Lomar has 24 container ships

A feeder was also handed over. This is the “Hamburg Trader”, which was also built in 2005 and has a slot capacity of 1,118 TEU. The new owner has not been officially announced.

Lomar is thus pressing ahead with its exit from container shipping. In this context, the sale of the “Tampa Trader” with 1,103 TEU to the German shipping company Elbdeich was recently announced. Most recently, Lomar’s container fleet comprised 24 ships. In addition, there are seven bulkers and four chemical tankers.
