Dutch heavy lift shipping company Jumbo Shipping has opened a Representative Office in Bremen (Germany) in cooperation with German independent breakbulk and heavy lift shipbroker Coli Schiffahrt & Transport KG. The new office, Jumbo Agency Germany GmbH, aims to further strengthen Jumbo’s position in the German project cargo and heavy lift market. Mr. Felix Peinemann, having many years of experience in project shipping (of which 5 years in overweight and oversized cargo), has been appointed General Manager.
Peter Bloch, Jumbo Shipping’s Commercial Director, expresses his confidence in this new venture: “We’ve been doing business with the German industry for over 40 years. The new office enables us to strengthen our relationships with our clients and respond quickly to their needs. In addition, we’re looking forward to build long-term relationships with new clients.”
Jumbo Agency Germany draws on the expertise of both Coli Schiffahrt & Transport KG, with its excellent knowledge of the German project market, and Jumbo Shipping, with its rich experience in heavy lift transport, incl. pre- and on-carriage logistics. The new agency offers total transport solutions for overseas heavy lift and project cargo and aims for the highest standards in safety and reliability.
Jumbo Shipping is market leader in the transport of oversized and heavyweight cargo. Jumbo currently owns and operates a fleet of 12 dedicated Heavy Lift Vessels (two of which have DP2), with lifting capacities of up to 1,800 tonnes. Safety and reliability are at the core of all of Jumbo’s activities. By continuously implementing its ‘Stay Well’ program, Jumbo brings the highest standards of safety and quality into every single Heavy Lift project.
