Spliethoff specializes in worldwide shipping of dry cargo. The Dutch company operates a fleet of some fifty modern multipurpose tween-decked vessels. They are suitable for tropical waters as well as arctic conditions. Their tonnage varies from 15,640 to 27,560 cubic meters. The vessels are mostly loaded with forest products, paper and steel cargo, as well as with dry bulk goods like sand, minerals, wheats and cocoa. Project cargoes are also possible.
The history of Spliethoff goes back to 1921, with the establishment of a shipbroker office specializing in forest products from the Baltics. The company operates both its international head office and a large warehouse in the Port of Amsterdam.
