SHIPPING DIVISION

The Company’s activities include Operations, Accounting & Finance and Commercial Management. The company was born as a JV in 1994 as SiderMarine, and rapidly grew through strategic alliances which allowed to reach a global presence. Its mission is to provide customers with fast, flexible and reliable shipping solutions, delivering-class service to leading international charterers, cooperating closely with every actor in the shipping chain.

Through its many subsidiaries, Nova Marine Group serves nearly 250 different clients in 108 countries all around the world. In 2020 its vessels transported more than 21,000,000 tons of commodities, despite the difficulties due to the global outbreak of pandemic, thanks to a well-established corporate multi-commodity approach aimed at diversifying its business area instead of focusing in few sectors.

Duferco driving force in the Shipping sector is maintaining the leadership acquired over the years and moving towards new ones such as handysize in the Mediterranean and Atlantic area and being the only global shipping company capable of providing commercial and technical services simultaneously.

The company has its headquarters based in Lugano, Switzerland, and has offices in Bogotá, Dubai, Geneva, Istanbul, London, Madrid, Miami, Monte-Carlo, Rotterdam, Sofia, Singapore and Toronto. More recently, Nova Marine joined Sea Cargo Charter, the global framework for assessing and disclosing the climate alignment of chartering activities, together with the major player of the sector and consistently with the United Nations International Maritime Organization (IMO)’s ambition to reduce GHG emissions from the shipping sector by 50% by 2050.
