Aries Offshore is apparently once again in the selling mood and has sold one of its biggest assets, the 3,600-dwt platform-supply-vessel Aries Warrior (built 2008), to business interests from asian shores for about $27 million, according to sources around the worldwide ocean freight shipping industry.

This price has many in the worldwide freight industry scratching their heads as this move seems a bit off center during a time when Aries Offshore has been trying to attract more investors to its business.

It might be that Aries Offshore has a few plans coming down the pipeline that it wants to keep close to its corporate-vest, for now, and there could be some additional news on this affair by the next time we hear about Aries Offshore?

Ocean Freight Carriers of Steel Coils Rejoice!
There's two new 20ft containers being advertised by Finland-based ocean freight carrier of steel Oy Langh Ship AB for the storage and transport of steel coils that can also be implemented in the transport of many types of free-flowing dry bulk freight.
