Osaka Asahi has five bulkers in its live fleet of nine ships, data from VesselsValue shows.

These also include one small dry vessel and three containerships.

The company is set to welcome a 2,100 dwt singledecker newbuilding into its fleet later this year.

A Supramax bulk carrier newbuilding of 60,200 dwt is expected to follow suit in 2020. The bulker is being built by Japanese Mitsui Tamano.
