Shipping company Kahrs
Looking back on 125 years of experience in the shipping industry, the shipping company Kahrs is now in its fourth generation, with Captain J. Kahrs at the helm of the shipping company. The shipping company with the same name currently manages five container ships, which have been put into service between 2005 and 2007. Thanks to the ultra-modern feeder vessels, a well-trained crew and excellent charterer references, the company is a globally established player in the maritime industry.
Shipping company Lubeca
The shipping company's origins lie in 'ship management', beginning in 1988 with the founding of the 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 internally.
The Lubeca fleet consists of multipurpose freighters which are put into commission all over the world. Under the leadership of Jan-Peter Boehe and Max Gottwald, the shipping company currently manages an active fleet of six ships and one ship in management.
Shipping company Becker
The Becker family has been involved in shipping for more than 100 years and has evolved into a powerful and professional shipping company. Now in its third and fourth generation, Captain Bernd Becker, graduate engineer Arnd Becker as well as technician Jan-Jacob Becker currently lead the company into an even more successful future. A fleet of six modern ships is managed today. Since 1967, the shipping company Becker has gained experience in the design, construction and operation of container ships. The latest five newly built ships were optimised for all common container dimensions, in particular for transporting 45' containers. At the moment, the vessels are mainly active for North European feeder services.
