New Day Alumina

NEWPORT, R.I., Nov. 16, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Pangaea Logistics Solutions, Ltd. (NASDAQ: PANL) announced that it has completed its 100th voyage of the MV Bulk Pangaea in partnership with Noranda Bauxite and Alumina, a subsidiary of New Day Aluminum.

The route, which represents the largest bulk volume on the Mississippi River, navigates from Noranda's port at Discovery Bay, Jamaica, on the island's north coast, to Noranda's facility in Gramercy, Louisiana, just upriver from New Orleans, transporting approximately 63,000 tons of bauxite per voyage.

The milestone is a testament to the successful partnership these two firms have developed and maintained with the support of Mid-Ship Marine, the global ocean freight brokering division of Mid-Ship Group LLC headquartered in New York.

"Our partnership with Noranda continues to be a huge success as indicated by the reaching of this important milestone," said Ed Coll, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Pangaea Logistics Solutions. "We continue to see great opportunities to continue to expand our partnership as leaders in our respective industries," Coll added.

David D'Addario, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Noranda, commented, "In 2017, we celebrated the 100th voyage of the Bulk Patriot and we are thrilled to be here again three years later celebrating the 100th voyage of the Bulk Pangaea – a testament to the great partnership we have with Pangaea and MidShip. We look forward to the next milestones in our long and growing partnership."
