headquartered in Hamilton
. The company operates the world's largest fleet of open hatch gantry and semi-open jib craned vessels. These vessels specialize in carrying unitised breakbulk cargoes like forest products, non-ferrous metals, and steel. The company also has a revenue stream in terminal operations.
Gearbulk was founded by Kristian Gerhard Jebsen of Bergen, Norway in 1968.
The Gearbulk fleet consists of over 70 vessels, most of which are "open hatch gantry craned (OHGC)" vessels. Standardizing on this design makes the vessels interchangeable, and offers operational flexibility.
