Bulk-shipping company opens oceans away from the sea
Bulk-shipping company J. Lauritzen will open a 'dry cargo' office in Geneva from the start of 2015.
The Copenhagen-based firm says that a large number of their clients are in Switzerland, which accounts for 10-15 percent of their business.
Dry cargoes include commodities such as iron ore, coal, grains, timber and steel. Geneva is home to some of the world largest commodities companies, including Cargill, Trafigura, Gunvor and Louis Dreyfus.
