Dry bulk shipping
Cargill is one of the world’s leading providers of dry-bulk shipping services. Our fleet of over 600 vessels, which is comprised of Cape, Baby Cape Panamax, Kamsarmax, Supramax, Handy and Coaster-size vessels, trade between 975 ports.
Each year, we manage over 4,500 voyages. Our operations team is adept at managing the carriage of a wide range of cargoes, including iron ore, coal, bauxite, corn, wheat, soybeans, steel, sugar and more.
Cargill is active in trading freight derivatives which allows us to mitigate price risk for shipowners and charterers.
Product tanker shipping
Cargill has a leading team of freight-trading and operations professionals dedicated to the carriage of “clean” liquid products. We do not carry any "dirty" petroleum products (crude oils or residual fuels).
Our time-chartered fleet has grown considerably and currently comprises 20-25 MRs and 3-5 LR2s. In the MR segment, we partner with Maersk Tankers in a joint MR pool.
Each year, Cargill delivers over 600 fixtures. Our commodity expertise includes clean petroleum products, LNG/LPG, edible oil, caustic soda, fertilizers and biodiesels.
We also offer comprehensive freight solutions using FFA derivatives markets to minimize your freight risk.
Operationally, in addition to RightShip vetting, Cargill runs an in-house tanker vetting policy to ensure the highest operational standards across our fleet.
Parceling can be defined as the use of one vessel to carry cargo from multiple charterers between two or more locations.
As a market leader in ocean transportation, Cargill has regularly managed shipments from Australia to Chile, Peru, and Mexico. Cargill has now expanded its parceling service into Asia and the Middle East.
Parceling provides shippers with the opportunity to save money and gain access to new markets in an efficient way. Customers can also save 20 to 40% in CO2 emissions per voyage

Compliance with IMO 2020 Global Sulphur Cap
In 2016, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) took a bold step towards making shipping more sustainable. At a meeting of its Marine Environment Protection Committee, member states agreed to reduce the authorized sulphur content of marine fuels from 3.5 to 0.5% from January 1 2020. Cargill fully supported this regulation from the beginning and continues to lobby for robust enforcement.
Cargill is committed to 100% compliance with the new regulation. To do so, we are using low-sulphur compliant fuel for around 90 to 95% of our fleet, while the remaining 5 to 10% of our fleet has been fitted with open-loop exhaust gas cleaning systems (commonly known as “scrubbers”).
