OUR FLEET

We are specialists for multipurpose carriers

The vessels mostly navigate through Northern Sea, Baltic, Sea, Mediterranean Sea and Atlantic/ Pacific Ocean. We appreciate a trustful, close relationship with our customers since our vessels are operated on a time charter basis. The carried goods are pulp, timber, paper and much more.

We are open for testing new environmental technologies on board.

GREEN SHIPPING

green shipping

To love the earth means to save the environment!

In the past we started several projects in green shipping on our vessels. We tested a SCR converter ahead of time, dry scrubbers and now we got a Flettner Rotor on our ship MV Annika Braren.

For our efforts, we’ve got the European clean Marine Award 2004 and the German award “Blauer Engel”
We are always looking for new solutions to save CO2. That might be the biggest challenge for the upcoming decades.

History & Future

A captain dropped the anchor

Rörd Braren looked back to many decades of sailing over the seas as a captain, when he and his wife (shipping company daughter) Ute Braren had the dream of owning a vessel. Finally 1990, they made it happen and founded the small shipping company with the name “Reederei Braren” at the river ‘Elbe’ close to Hamburg. 

First Vessel 'Cellus' built 1979

Christening of second vessel new 'Cellus' 1998

Now over 30 years later, the family business is managed together with the second generation, daughter Anna Braren with husband Jan Braren. Starting with one ship, increased the fleet up to eleven ships in 2024.
