Arista, founded in 2007 in Greece, is a global provider of shipping transportation services and specializes in managing the worldwide ocean transportation of dry bulk cargoes, including commodities such as iron ore, coal, grain, salt, alumina and other minor bulk cargoes. Arista actively seeks to protect the environment with our disruptive Project Forward. We adhere to what we promote and encourage others to copy our practices.
Arista is leading Project Forward, a Joint Development Project to combat global ship emissions. Conceived in 2013 and announced in 2016, Project Forward aims to prove the feasibility and commercial applicability of liquefied natural gas (LNG) as fuel for ships. Project Forward has developed a commercially feasible LNG-powered dry bulk carrier design capable of complying with International Maritime Organization’s Energy Efficiency Design Index 2025 standards, NOx Tier III and Marpol Annex VI SOx emission levels.
Since 2013, Arista has been joined in its efforts by a prestigious group of industry leaders consisting of ABS (American Bureau of Shipping, one of the world’s leading ship classification societies), Deltamarin (a ship design, offshore engineering and construction group operating in the marine and offshore industries worldwide), GTT (Gaztransport & Technigaz, an engineering company specialised in the design of membrane containment systems for the maritime transportation and storage of liquefied gas), and Wärtsilä (a Finnish corporation which manufactures and services power sources and other equipment in the marine and energy markets).
We own and operate four modern vessels in the handysize and supramax sizes built in Japan and S. Korea.
Our aim is to continue growing to become one of the major dry bulk shipping companies worldwide.
Our experienced shore-side team controls and operates our vessels fully in-house.
We provide ship management services to third parties.
