Our people are our key assets

Humboldt ship management

Humboldt provices technical and crew management services for more than 50 owned vessels, including LPG/C, tankers, dry cargo vessels and tug boats.

Humboldt Shipmanagement was founded back in 1990. It was the continuation of more than 35 years of previous know-how on ship owning activities, and in managing the fleet of a company founded earlier by Captain Albert von Appen.

Nowadays our fleet is composed of crude oil and clean products Tankers, Chemical Tankers, Gas Tankers, Container Ships, General Cargo Vessels, Bulkcarriers, and Salvage and Port Tugboats. Our actual operations are worldwide, with special focus in South America.

The main target is to enable the commercial employment of the vessels through the standards required by the industry today.
