What We Do

At CSL Americas, we specialize in the marine transportation and handling of dry-bulk cargo throughout North, South and Central America. Working with partners Oldendorff Carriers, Marbulk Shipping Inc. and Algoma Shipping Inc. under the banner of the CSL International Pool, we offer our customers a wide-range of self-unloading and transhipment solutions. This CSL International Pool manages a fleet of 19 ocean-going self-unloaders, 10 of which are wholly owned by CSL.

With our Pool partners, we offer a range of vessel sizes, from Handy to Panamax, delivery systems from articulated to telescopic, as well as the option for straight discharge booms, depending on the needs of our customers.

Our clients are in industries ranging from steel to agriculture. The cargo we transport includes salt, aggregate, coal, petcoke, gypsum and iron ore.


Where We Operate

CSL Americas operates throughout North American coastal trades, including shipments to and from Canada, and South and Central Americas. Domestic shipping within Canada is handled by the Canada Steamship Lines division.
