Vancouver, WA – The Port of Vancouver USA recently welcomed the bulk carrier Kypros Unity on her maiden voyage.

The Kypros Unity is a Panamanian-flagged bulk carrier launched earlier this year in Japan. The ship is owned by Gloverthree Shipping Corp., chartered by Mitsui & Co. Ltd. and operated by Safety Management Overseas S.A.

The vessel is 738 feet long and has a deadweight capacity of 78,056 metric tons.

The Kypros Unity called at Busan, South Korea, to take on fuel before calling at Vancouver, where she loaded more than 64,000 metric tons of soybeans for China.

Agricultural products, including soybeans, wheat and corn, are the Port of Vancouver’s top exports by weight. The port has exported 278,014 metric tons of soybeans so far this year, mainly to Asia.
