The principal entity of the group is MF Jebsen International Limited, a holding company headquartered in Hong Kong. The Executive Chairman, Markus F.

Kahrs Bereederung


Carrying on 145 years of family tradition, fourth-generation Captain Jan Kahrs is now at the helm of Kahrs Bereederung.

With his shipping company of the same name he currently manages his privately owned vessel, a B170 containervessel. Thanks to experience in ultra-modern feeder vessels, a well-trained crew, and excellent charterer references, the company is a globally established player in the maritime industry.

Lubeca Marine


The shipping company's origins are 'ship management', beginning in 1988 with the founding of Lubeca Marine Management (HK) Ltd. in Hong Kong by Captain Klaus S. Boehe, his partner Steven Cheung, and a shipping company from Lübeck. The company purchased its first ship in 1995 - a tweendecker with derricks and a deadweight tonnage of 15,000 tdw. Additional second-hand vessels were acquired in the following years, in which the company concentrated on geared tweendeckers of up to 5,000 tdw. Lubeca has managed the entire nautical/technical support of all its maritime vessels since 2000. In addition, all crew staffing of ships is carried out in-house.

The Lubeca fleet consists of multi-purpose freighters, which have been put into service all over the world. Under the leadership of Jan-Peter Boehe and Max Gottwald, the shipping company currently manages an active fleet of seven ships.

Becker Ship-
Management


The Becker family has been in the shipping business for more than 115 years and has evolved into a powerful and professional shipping company. Now in its third and fourth generation, Captain Bernd Becker, engineer Arnd Becker, and technicalexpert Jan-Jacob Becker currently chart the company's course.

Currently, the company has two vessels under management. Since 1967, the shipping company Becker has gained experience in the design, construction, and operation of container ships.
