Dalaro Shipping AB. was established in 1981 in Stockholm, Sweden, under the name Dalarö Oil & Shipping AB. Since the inception we have grown to become a leading and well recognized logistic alternative for the Swedish and Finnish forest industry for the carriage of sawn timber to various destinations in Northern Africa.
Since January 2019 our main office is in Norrköping
Our business in based on two legs. The first and most important is to provide seaborne logistic solutions from the Baltic Sea for the Finish and Sweden forest industry to ports in all North African countries.
Yearly we load about 2,0 million cubic meters of sawn timber and pulp. We focus on choosing ports close to the industry and we work close with the chosen ports to load fast and with safety in focus.
In Sweden our main port for loading is Orrskär, where we load about 500.000 m3 per year. Orrskär port is also the most efficient when it comes to loading of timber in packages and setting the capacity for all the other loading ports in our trade.
The second leg, well as important is the return voyages to the Baltic from Mediterranean, in total we load about 1,5 million tons of bulk cargoes.
We transport different bulk-cargoes such as, gypsum stones, rock/sea salt, phosphates, marble ships and concentrates. The main commodity is gypsum stones out of Garrucha to Ireland and the Nordic Countries.
Dalaro focus on the loading speed and safety, to mention we have in Oslo invested in a grab connecting to the crane onboard the vessel driven by the crew to save time and speed up discharging.
