Norway-based Star Reefer’s profit fell to US$3.8m from US$5.1m for the same April-June period a year earlier, reported the Journal of Commerce.

Net operating revenue dropped to US$48.6m from US$54.1m for the second quarter a year earlier.

Star Reefers is one of the leading operators of conventional bulk reefer vessels.
