Shipping 

As part of Laviva’s integrated business model, we own a fleet of liquid and dry bulk carriers which improves the flexibility and efficiency of our logistic operations. This fleet provides partial support for our total shipping requirements while the balance of our requirements is met by chartering-in third-party vessels. 

As at 2019, we owned and managed 85 tankers / dry bulk vessels with a total tonnage of about 2.3 million MT.
