Hansa Shipping

HANSA SHIPPING GmbH & CO. KG came into existence in 1997. It represents the independent ship management arm within the HANSA TREUHAND-Unternehmensgruppe [HANSA TRUSTEE Group of Companies]. It was founded as a shipping company in its own right with a view to coordinating the operations of the steadily growing fleet of HANSA TREUHAND with a maximum of technical and commercial efficiency.

When the businessman Hermann Ebel and Captain Bodo Franz launched HANSA SHIPPING, to begin with they were operating the HANSA CENTURY and the HANSA CONSTITUTION (each with 2810 TEU). These were the last two ships to be manufactured by the traditional Bremer Vulkan shipyard in the year 1997. This 'fleet' was supplemented at the time by the cruise yachts SEA CLOUD and RIVER CLOUD. HANSA SHIPPING is operating four tankers of the Afra or Suezmax class.

The chartering is arranged by our affiliated company HANSA CHARTERING.
