Focus on future

Long-term development instead of short-term maximizing.

We focus on slow, sustainable and healthy growth. Our objective is to ensure the success of the group for future generations. Successful long-term development has always been more important to us than a short-term maximizing of profits.

The cornerstone of our success is our adherence to the following principles


Ship owning

As ship owners we are able to meet our customers’ demands carefully and to offer tailor-made solutions for their individual transportation needs.


Owning and operating fleets in various shipping segments leads to a wide distribution of risks and makes us less susceptible to market fluctuations.


Direct access to cargo

One of our overriding functional principles is in-house chartering. Our specialized commercial management companies provide direct access to cargo in all segments and a comprehensive knowledge of the markets.


Crewing and Training

We strongly believe that recruiting our own crew and offering specific in-house training will result in the quality standards we are striving for and that our customers expect – be it on our own vessels or for those under 3rd party management.
