MC-Schiffahrt was founded in 1986 in Hamburg. Initially the company specialized in advising German shipping companies. In the 1990s it developed its own fleet and became an independent shipping company. Since then, our main focus has been container feeder vessels, handysize bulk carriers and MPP/tweendeckers for transporting conventional project cargoes.
We conduct all shipping management inhouse, so our daily work involves all aspects of ships: nautical-technical management, ship crews, chartering, operation, sale & purchase, financing, accounting and controlling, conception/consulting, project development, as well as direct personal support of banks and investors.
