Bavaria meets
Hamburg

MINSHIP group is a well established company with a focus on all aspects of shipmanagement. With Headquarters in Schnaittenbach, Bavaria, we have been involved in bulk carriers for many years.

Offering a highly experienced commercial team, we take great pride in providing long term management and logistical solutions for both our vessel owner and cargo trading clients.

Our in-house subsidiary MINMARINE works closely with the commercial department and takes great care of the technical, crewing management and the nautical operation of the ships.

Since 2021, we have been able to integrate into the group, Auerbach MARINE, a Hamburg based technical manager for heavy-lift vessels, handling a fleet of MPPs and thus complex and large projects for many years. MINSHIP’s expertise has thus now been expanded across the ship segments.

MINSHIP is a transparent and cooperative service provider and, as a medium-sized company, is able to respond specifically to customer wishes – and yet, with a fleet of >20 ships, ensure permanent and reliable operations. The combination of cosmopolitanism with Bavarian and Hanseatic virtues means that we make no compromises in our relationship with our partners. Our word is truly our bond: We are there for you.

Our
History

The history of MINSHIP’s predecessor companies
dates back to 1985. In its current form, MINSHIP – since 2017 – has provided full ship management including

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. Additionally, accounting services are provided to our customers, ranging from bookkeeping to complete prospectus approval with financial market authorities.

In 2021, a total of about five million tons of cargo were carried by the currently managed fleet of Handysize and Panamax vessels, ranging from 28,000 to 76,000 dwat per vessel.

With Markus Hiltl and Arne Seesemann at the helm as Managing Directors of MINSHIP Shipmanagement GmbH & Co. KG and his experienced team a first class ship management service is continuously safeguarded. The Group is responsible for the management of a broad range of vessels (details see FLEET) owned and controlled by a wide variety of third-party shareholders from Europe, Asia and the Americas.
