The Schiffahrtsgesellschaft Oltmann mbH & Co. KG is a family owned company founded back in 1836 and is now in the hands of the sixth generation. The company operates a modern and very young fleet of container vessels, in sizes between 2500 TEU and 5000 TEU.

At an early stage, we set ourselves high standards regarding to quality and safety in shipping on board the vessels as well as ashore in the office. All relevant rules and standards had been met and implemented prematurely. We serve the entire scope in shipping business, which includes

  • project development
  • financing
  • supervision of newbuildings
  • operation of the ships
  • liquidation after sale

In order to make sure we always have sufficient and well-trained seagoing personell, we take great efforts in education and run part of the fleet under German flag. Over the years the company expanded constantly and is now being carried on by the Captains Jan and Peter Oltmann.
