Germans MPC Münchmeyer Petersen Steamship and Thien & Heyenga join the fleets of portacontainer

Constitution of joint venture 50:50 Contchart Hamburg

Shipowning societies German MPC Münchmeyer Petersen Steamship and Thien & Heyenga have tightened an agreement in order to jointly commercialize the respective fleets of portacontainer, than together they count 102 ships. The understanding will be realized through chartering company the Contchart Hamburg GmbH & Co. KG, society that Thien & Heyenga has constituted at the beginning of this year and of which MPC Münchmeyer Petersen Steamship it will acquire 50% of the capital. Last month MPC Münchmeyer Petersen Steamship has signed an agreement of cooperation with the Ahrenkiel Shipmanagement of the German group commercial Ahrenkiel for together the respective fleets, understanding that will remain in vigor with the constitution of joint venture joint with Thien & Heyenga.

MPC Münchmeyer Petersen Steamship and Thien & Heyenga have announced that they will transfer own employee to joint venture and that is not in program some reduction of the staff.

Contchart Hamburg will commercialize a composed fleet from 111 ships, of which 102 portacontainer of ability comprised between 400 and 5.500 teu and nine to rinfusiere of ability comprised between 35.000 and 180.000 gross capacities in tons.

Contchart Hamburg will be guided by Gundolf Hartzig, in charge of the division chartering of Thien & Heyenga, and from Markus Büsig, managing director of MPC Münchmeyer Petersen Steamship. “Ago a great difference - Hartzig has commented - if you have 10 or 100 ships of range wide to your disposition and if you are constantly in contact with all the main companies of line. Such advantage is not from underrating in the current situation of the market of the shipping, that it is characterized by an inactivity and that will be resumed only very slowly”. “Putting together our competences - it has added Büsig - we can offer to our customers a service better than it is adapted well to the requirements of the companies and the markets. A insufficient question of tonnage involves a rigorous management of the costs and an action founded on the service that is almost impossible for the smaller truths”.
