HISTORY

LONGSTANDING EXPERTISE

The history of MINSHIP’s predecessor companies dates back to 1985 when, Jürgen W. Ruttmann, native of Hamburg, moved to Southern Germany. In its current form, MINSHIP is providing full ship management including

  • commercial
  • crewing
  • technical

but also international freight forwarding services. Via affiliated companies, the group moreover is able to provide services in short sea trade, tanker brokerage and the ship agency sector, too. Additionally, accounting services are provided to our customers, ranging from bookkeeping to complete prospectus approval with financial market authorities.

In 2016, a total of about five million tons of cargo were carried by the currently managed fleet of Handysize and Panamax vessels, ranging from 30,000 to 38,000 dwat per vessel.

With Matthias M. Ruttmann at the helm as Managing Director of MINSHIP Shipmanagement GmbH & Co KG, a continued family presence is safeguarded. The Group is responsible for the management of a broad range of vessels (details see OUR FLEET) owned and controlled by a wide variety of third-party shareholders from Europe, Asia and the Americas.
