Captain Rörd Braren

The shipping company ‘Rörd Braren’ was founded in 1990.

The fleet consists in eight owned multipurpose freighters as well as five ships we provide ship management for. The shipping company therefore looks currently after thirteen ships.

M/S Cellus and M/S Timbus have been operating since they were commissioned for the Swedish paper industry, the cooperative SÖDRA Skogsägarna.

M/S Millerntor, M/S Bremer Elena, M/S Bremer Johanna are in the service of the Bremen shipping line and are calling currently at ports in the Mediterranean, as well as North and Baltic Seas.

M/S African Wind, M/S African Forest and M/S African River are in the service of the BOCS-line in the West-Africa service. M/S BBC Lima, M/S Bocs Vision and M/S Bocs Spirit are used worldwide.

Being close to my ships, my crew both shore-based and on board is very important to me. „Captain Rörd Braren“.

About us

Water has been the most efficient transport route as long as anyone can remember, and for no other means of transport is the ratio of cost and transportation capacity as effective as a ship. And this efficiency is increasing again with modern vehicles which are optimally tuned to their area of operation and freight as well as a clear shipping line concept.

That might be the reason why we as shipping line Rörd Braren are successfully and continually growing since we were founded in 1990.

Our philosophy can be described as ‘Small but powerful’.

Our fleet of currently thirteen ships complies with the very latest standards; the most environment-friendly freighter in the world (as matters stood 2010) is an excellent example for that. We are specialised in multipurpose freighters, which are exactly tailored to the needs of our charterers – be it an ice-class designation for northern waters, a tweendecker for optimal transportation of general cargo or own cranes to be less dependent on the harbour infrastructure.

In 2016 we have moved into our new offices in Kollmar (Bielenberg District).

Flexibility and highest efficiency are the trade marks of our multipurpose freighters and of our company.

Traditionally we have extensive expertise – amongst others for cargo for the wood- and paper-industries. We are increasingly appreciated as technical-nautical service provider for third-party tonnage.  We strive for a trusting and close relationship with clients and partners and contribute actively to testing and establishment of new techniques for ship operation and environmental protection.

Looking at the multitude of innovative environmental technologies which are applied within our fleet of ships, we may very well call ourselves pioneers in this area.

All of this with one goal:
