The company

Mr. Bockstiegel, Managing Director

The history of our company began in 1983. In that year, Captain Werner Bockstiegel founded ‘Bockstiegel Bereederungs GmbH‘ for all kinds of shipping business.

A special focal point of the business was the planning of new buildings as well as their commercial and
technical support. This is still the case today, although since the year 2000 the company trades under the name of ‘W.Bockstiegel Reederei GmbH & Co KG‘.


Mr. Weissinger, Managing Director (CFO)

Thanks to our experience and comprehensive knowledge in nautical, technical and commercial matters, the company has enjoyed a continuous growth since it was founded.

This growth is documented by the constantly increasing number of successfully sold vessels as
well as the number of vessels launched and managed; by the year 2010 the Bockstiegel fleet should comprise a total of 90 ships which are each operated as independent private limited partnerships.
