“All Hands on Deck” is the corporate philosophy practised by Beluga Shipping GmbH, a specialist for precise customer-specific transport solutions in the project and heavy-lift segment. Established with headquarters in Bremen (Germany) by CEO Niels Stolberg in 1995, the innovative shipping company has been world market leader in the project and heavy-lift sector since 2008 according to the Institute of Shipping Economics and Logistics (ISL) thanks to dynamic development.

The Beluga team is represented by a total of 475 experienced experts in all areas from transport engineering and chartering all the way to administration at twelve locations around the globe. On board the company’s vessels 1,300 crew members are in operation around the clock to make sure that even the biggest and heaviest cargo reaches the port of destination intact and on schedule. The name Beluga Shipping not only stands for committed performance of daily tasks, but also for reliable implementation of challenging transport projects or realisation of extraordinary visions. The impetus for all members of the company staff is the motivation to meet the demands of customers to their complete satisfaction by means of creativity, flexibility and professionalism. In addition, Beluga Shipping helps to shape the future of the maritime sector by providing intensive training to prospective nautical officers and ship mechanics and frequently performs a pioneering role in putting innovations into practice that, for example, increase the efficiency of ship operations in an environmentally sound manner.

Beluga’s modern special fleet consisting of three different types of vessels currently encompasses 66 multipurpose heavy-lift carriers altogether with up to 700 tons and soon up to 800 tons in lifting capacity. The fleet will be expanded to around 75 units by 2012, including crane gear that enables safe independent lifting of up to 1,400 tons of cargo. This means Beluga Shipping can transport all kinds of project and heavy-lift cargo, even off the commonly sailed trade routes, to any port in the world, where the chain of processes individually coordinated with the client is completed while maintaining the highest level of quality.

Besides core business, Beluga Shipping assumes social responsibility to a pronounced degree and has committed itself to numerous social, cultural, educational and sports projects in Bremen, the surrounding region, Germany and Thailand. Through its diverse activities the Corporate Responsibility Division supports initiatives that create sustainability, strengthen personal responsibility, provide help for self-help and boost cultural identity, diversity and tolerance.
