Another cargo of imported South American animal feed arrived today from Argentina aboard the wood chip carrier WORLD TRADER, whose last discharge port had been Belfast. WORLD TRADER dates from 1981, when she was completed as EIYO MARU at the Aioa Shipyard of Ishikawajima-Harima Heavy Industries. Of 44,270 tonnes deadweight, she is 198.08 metres in length, and is managed by the Glasgow office of V Ships, although her owners are a Panamanian company.
