House Flag of Norsul Internacional (Brazil).

According to the company website, Companhia de Navegação Norsul is the largest privately owned shipping group in Brazil, carrying over 6 million tons of cargo a year. It was founded in 1963 as part of the Lorentzen Group, which was established ten years earlier. Norsul connects Brazil with Europe, the Far East, and the rest of South America, operating 12 bulk carriers of its own, ranging from 16,000 deadweight tons up to "Panamax" size (the largest ship that can go through the Panama Canal), plus 11 more on long-term charter and others on shorter term leases. Its overseas business is primarily carrying forest products such as paper, pulp, and timber, as well as concentrated fruit juices.
