The Firm…

Apollo Shipping GmbH & Co. KG was founded in the year 1991 by Peter Meyer-Wenk & Lars G. Frederiksen. The aim was to constitute a service for several small shipowners in need of commercial operation for their vessels. This project was very successful from the beginning on and meanwhile Apollo Shipping is very well established and specialized in the short-sea bulk chartering tramp market.

Today the fleet operated by Apollo Shipping consist of freight vessels in sizes of 4.500 up to 10.000 DWAT, some of them geared. Together with our partners we guarantee a well maintained and frequently modernized fleet on high technical standards.

Most shipments are effected in the European seas. If required we will also call West African, South American and Caribbean ports.

The main cargoes we ship are fertilizers, steel products, building materials, recycling material, yachts, wood-pulp, peat moss, construction parts and windmills.
