Specialist heavy lift owner and operator Cosco Shipping Company Limited (Coscol) has changed its name to Cosco Shipping Specialised Carriers Co, in line with a organisational reform of its parent firm.
Shanghai-listed Cosco Shipping Specialised Carriers currently operates more than 150 ships ranging from heavy lifts, semi-submersibles, ro-ros and ice-class vessels.
The new name follows the merger of the two state-owned shipping conglomerates, China Cosco Group and China Shipping Group, to form China Cosco Shipping Corporation Limited (Cosco Shipping).
Since the official launch of Cosco Shipping in February and a rebranding in September, the group’s various subsidiaries have gone through organisational restructures, including changing of company names to reflect their respective business strategy going forward.
