Founded in 1945 by Captain Oskar Wehr, the company is a well established globally operating ship manager run by the third family generation. Headquartered in Hamburg, OSKAR WEHR is a full-service provider for both bulk vessels and container vessels. While capabilities for both asset-classes exist, OSKAR WEHR’s management has decided to focus primarily on the dry bulk sector based on more promising market expectations.
The service range comprises of supervision of new buildings, full technical and commercial management services, crew management and competitive chartering services. These services are being provided for owned tonnage as well as for 3rd party vessels. The OSKAR WEHR managed fleet presently consists of one containership and 22 bulk carriers. The capesize bulkers, which are under 3rd party management, were prior to their sale in 2018, owned and successfully operated by WEHR since their deliveries from the new-building yards. The single container ship is the last remaining KG-financed vessel in the fleet.
OSKAR WEHR does closely work together with the flag states of Belgium, Cyprus and the Marshall Islands. Being ISO 9001 and 14001 certified it is our main target to provide the best practices to our customers and to maximise charterers satisfaction by avoiding technical off-hire.
