All-time low dry bulk market hits Norden with deficit

The all-time low dry bulk market sends Norden into the red with a combined deficit of USD 5 million in the first quarter compared to a profit in the same period last yea. The carrier projects a full-year result in the range of a USD 60 million loss to a USD 30 million profit.

However, the carrier can be pleased to note a fairly stable performance for its tanker business, according to the interim report, published Wednesday.
