Schulte Group

 As part of the Schulte Group, Bernhard Schulte Shipmanagement is anchored in the heritage and strength of a German family owned business first established in 1883 in Papenburg.

Now based in the maritime city of Hamburg and entering its fifth generation of private ownership, the Schulte family knows what it means to own and operate ships: it's in our blood. A modern and diversified fleet of 95 fully and jointly-owned ships represents the core of the Bernhard Schulte owned fleet. Reliable and rewarding long-term deployment for a fleet of this calibre is assured through partnerships with blue-chip liner companies, oil majors and established consortia and pools.

The Schulte family is fully committed to further developing BSM as a leading maritime solutions provider and the leader in quality shipmanagement, in line with our published Vision & Mission.

Bernhard Schulte Shipmanagement was formed in 2008 through the combination of four ship management companies already owned by the Schulte Group into one integrated maritime solutions provider:

  • Hanseatic Shipping (established 1972)
  • Dorchester Atlantic Marine (1978)
  • Eurasia Group (1981) and
  • Vorsetzen Bereederungs- und Schiffahrtskontor (1999)
