The Bremen-based group has taken over Rickmers-Linie, including its subsidiaries MCC Marine and NPC Projects.
Together, ZEABORN Group, Rickmers-Linie, and the latter's daughter companies have a combined fleet of about 50 multi-purpose vessels, with deadweight capacities between 7,500 and 30,000 tn, and a team of nearly 200 employees.
"With the growth of our fleet, we were faced with the challenge of building a global organization. Everyone who knows the shipping industry knows that this is a very challenging task in our time. In this respect, it’s a fortune for our development that Rickmers-Linie was available at the right time," Jan Hendrik Többe, Managing Partner of ZEABORN, said.
Ove Meyer, also Managing Partner of ZEABORN, added: "Just like us, Rickmers-Linie and NPC Projects are concentrating on the transport of break-bulk, heavy lifts, and project cargo. They have an excellent reputation, have close, long-term customer relationships, and stand for reliability, quality, innovation, and technical competence. With its line-up services and the tramp business of NPC, Rickmers-Linie connects the most important business centers in the world. In this unique combination, we are now able to offer our customers even more tailor-made transport solutions.”
