Trust is the basis of success: right from the start, Reederei Harmstorf & Co. has placed great emphasis on caring for and developing long-term alliances. Many of the relationships with private investors, underwriters, ship financing banks, charterers and suppliers have existed since the early days of the company.
A good example of this philosophy is the smallest ship belonging to the fleet: MV Madeleine. Between March 2001 and up to her sale in 2015, this ship has been chartered to the same Liner Operator and continuously proved itself on its shipping route from Southern Florida to the west coast of South America, which has remained the same for all those years!
Other vessels of the fleet have also remained with their first Operator since the delivery of those vessels in 2007 and continue to perform to the utmost satisfaction of their Operator.
It's a people's business: from charterers through to suppliers, we know many of our partners personally. We have long-term trust-based relationships that ensure quick and trouble-free collaborations.
