In another move which sees an historic name from the world of ocean container freight and conventional cargo shipping disappear, following the sale of the ship management arm of German maritime group Rickmers, Rickmers Shipmanagement (Singapore) has now been renamed Zeaborn Ship Management (Singapore). The company has been part of Bremen-based Zeaborn Group since September 2017 and has been trading under its new name with effect from August 30, 2018.
Since August 10, Zeaborn Group has bundled its ship management activities under the new brand Zeaborn Ship Management, which brings together Rickmers Shipmanagement and E.R. Schiffahrt, which Zeaborn acquired in February this year. The Group currently manages more than 150 container and bulk cargo ships as well as multi-purpose vessels, and employs around 300 people on shore and approximately 4,550 at sea.
