View from the bridge

We tread new ground and seek new shores. By means of a “controlled offensive”, we set course for the future. On the basis of an accurate analysis of the market, we look beyond the railing to the horizon and find innovative answers to such pivotal questions as how to conduct our core business, project and heavy-lift shipping, even more efficiently, how to effectively maintain our concept of “Green Shipping” by keeping ecology and economy in balance and in particular how to handle and meet the increasingly complex demands of our customers in a professional manner.

We ensure top performance first and foremost through the outstanding “hardware” we offer in the form of our highly modern specialised fleet as well as thanks to a qualified and committed team on shore and on board. Furthermore, we strengthen our position as a reliable partner for safe, tailored and efficient transportation solutions by providing a new generation of multipurpose heavy-lift cargo carriers, the Beluga P class, whose 16 powerful units are specifically designed for the super heavy-lift segment. The foundation for our success is also based on the Beluga Sea Academy, which educates and trains more than 100 cadets every year, and the Maritime Centre of Research, located on the Maritime Campus Elsfleth, where we develop and try out various new approaches until they are ready for use on our vessels.

The spirit of innovation combined with strategic fleet expansion, innovative visions and committed promotion of prospective maritime personnel has paved the way for Beluga Shipping GmbH in attaining its position as world market leader in the project and heavy-lift transportation niche segment. At the headquarters in Bremen, a location rich in seafaring tradition, as well as at the global branch offices we are close to our customers and by focusing on precision, prudence and dedication, we build the framework for a successful future.

We move ahead to achieve higher goals.
