Griffith-based Bulkmatic has launched a brokerage and logistics management company. Our partners at The Times of Northwest Indiana report Bulkmatic Solutions will provide shippers contractual and spot dry bulk transportation through a carrier network.
According to Bulkmatic, the new company emerged from a joint venture called Dark Bulk FR8.
“Throughout 2020, we saw a strong business case for the value of dry bulk brokerage and logistics solutions through our Dry Bulk FR8 joint venture,” said President Chris Kravas. “That project was a highly successful proof-of-concept and as a result we’ve decided to go forward with an exclusively Bulkmatic company — Bulkmatic Solutions.”
According to The Times, Ben Caplenor will be the general manager of Bulkmatic Solutions.
