Liberian Registry breaks 100m gt mark


The Liberian Registry has breached the 100m tons gross mark with the delivery of the 50,792 dwt bulk carrier Sanko Mercury at Oshima Shipbuilding Company in Nagasaki.

“In the past five years alone, the Liberian Registry has grown by 40m gt,” said Scott Bergeron, Chief Operating Officer of the Liberian International Ship & Corporate Registry (LISCR), the US-based manager of the Liberian Registry. “That is twice the growth rate claimed by its nearest competitor in terms of total tonnage rankings over the same period, and establishes beyond dispute that Liberia is far and away the fastest growing quality shipping flag in the world.”
