About Us

Solym Carriers Ltd. (‘Solym’) was established in 2005 as a dedicated dry bulk freight trading and operating company with its headquarters in Piraeus, Greece.

The company originates from a Greek family with a tradition exceeding 100 years in seafaring and shipowning and a Hamburg-based shipowner and operator

Solym was thus formed for the purpose of meeting the dry bulk freight requirements of an industrial group from the Mediterranean to the Continent.

The company continues to actively procure Contracts of Affreightment (COAs) for major industrial groups and grain houses.

Shipment sizes are typically suitable for Handysize, Handymax or Panamax vessels.

Presently, Solym carries out the following:

  • Book Spot COAs and fix vessels on Voyage basis
  • Book Forward COAs and fix vessels on Time Charter
  • Time Charter-in & Charter-out vessels
  • Systematic Risk Management
  • Hedging the company’s physical position
