Shortsea lines to combine

UK line Carisbrooke Shipping and Swiss company Nova Marine Carriers SA are to combine their shortsea fleets, aggregating around 60 vessels ranging from 5,000 to 15,000 dwt.

All chartering and operations activities will be channelled from Nova Marine’s HQ in Lugano, with effect from 1 January 2017. At this juncture, it is unclear whether commercial operations will be combined.

German lines Hartmann Group and Schulte & Bruns (S&B) are also joining forces in the shortsea trades. As of 1 January 2017, Hartmann will take a 50% stake in Schulte & Bruns Chartering. The latter company operates S&B’s vessels, and will take over the commercial management of most of Hartmann Group’s multipurpose vessels with capacities ranging from 5,000 to 17,000 dwt, on an exclusive basis.

At the same time, Hartmann Group will take over the nautical and technical management, including crewing, of S&B’s owned ships through its subsidiary in Leer, Hartmann Dry Cargo Germany. Earlier this year, Hartmann sold its Dutch ship management company Feederlines BV to the company’s MD Jan van der Laan. At the same time, Feederlines and another ship management company, Naviga, agreed to cooperate.

Hartmann is also thought to be negotiating to sell another affiliate, MTL Maritime Transport and Logistik in Duisburg, which also includes the HPL liner service to West Africa.
