Our experience in the container segment dates back to late 1968, when we took over our first container ship. Since then Oskar Wehr has mainly focused on feeder size container ships in the range of 1,700 TEU to 2,500 TEU. One of the “workhorse” type B170 with 1,730 TEU is still under operation and serves classic feeder routes in the Asian markets.
Coal, ores and grain – the demand is increasing, especially in the booming markets from India to China. Our fleet is ready for that and is well positioned in this sector. With our new tonnage contracted from reputable new building yards in Japan and China, we have technical sound vessels in the “Cape” and “Supramax” segments. This enables us to provide to our customers a technical standard for economic operation and less fuel consumption. For us, part of business acumen means looking ahead to the markets of tomorrow.
