Nordic Bulk Carriers takes the next step in the Arctic

Danish shipping company Nordic Bulk Carriers plans to be the first carrier to sail via the Northern Sea Route from Canada to Finland.

The transit concerns the transportation of coal from Canada to Finland, and Danish pioneer Nordic Bulk Carriers A/S is the one doing the job.
