Poseidon Schiffahrt GmbH

The shipping line Poseidon, founded in 1889 in Königsberg (now known as Kaliningrad), was the largest German shipping company in the Baltic in the 1920s. It transported mainly Westphalian coal to this region. After 1945, Poseidon moved its headquarters to Hamburg and operated a liner service between Germany and the Great Lakes in Canada up to the beginning of the 1970s. Since then, the company has specialised in commercial management of ships. Poseidon thus has 40 years of experience managing other firms' vessels, particularly tankers, bulkcarriers and OBO carriers, as well as coasters in the short sea segment.

Since 2002, Poseidon has been active as exclusive Commercial Manager for the tankers of the "Wappen" series, which with their double hull and twin engines are regarded as exceptionally safe special tankers. These ships are deployed for transporting primarily chemicals and oil products. Poseidon is also responsible for the chartering of the vessels.
