Vale’s Shipping Strategy – Creating a Competitive Advantage?

In mid-2008, Vale announced an order for an innovative new ultra-large Capesize bulker targeting the Brazil/China trades. At 400,000 dwt, the Valemax or Chinamax ships are a third larger than the VLOC series pioneered earlier by Vale in a series of orders and conversions. The new generation of ships is part of a broader range of transshipment and other services that are intended to support innovative and low-cost services to its customers in China and secure an advantage relative to its competitors.
