Finally, Singapore’s RGL Shipping has reportedly placed an order for one Newcastlemax, to be delivered to the company in the first half of 2020.

The bulkers will be built in accordance with the NOx IMO Tier II emission standards and are priced at around USD 45 million respectively, as disclosed by Compass Maritime.
