Business Lines / Chartering
Hanseatic Unity Chartering (HU) GmbH & Co. KG (previously O&S Chartering) is the joint chartering and marketing platform of Borealis Maritime, Reederei NORD GMBH and Bernhard Schulte for container and dry bulk tonnage.

O&S Chartering was founded in 2013 by the traditional German shipowners REEDEREI NORD GMBH and Bernhard Schulte GmbH & Co. KG to combine the marketing and chartering of their container and dry bulk vessels. Both companies had cooperated since 1997 through the O&S Pool of 1.700 TEU ships. O&S Chartering established itself as the largest provider of modern eco designed containership tonnage in today’s shipping market. Borealis Maritime is a private shipping company founded in 2010. It provides a comprehensive range of integrated maritime services. 35 ships from its fleet are contributed to the new outfit.

HANSEATIC UNITY commenced operations in October 2015 to commercially manage a fleet of 119 container vessels from 700 to 9.400 TEU and 26 Bulk carriers from 37.000 to 77.000 DWT, including new buildings. The average age of the ships in water is 7 years.

It is the long term strategy of Hanseatic Unity Chartering to grow further and will thereby welcome further suitable vessels/owners who wish to join.
