  The Schulte Group wants to be a leading, independent, family owned ship owner and ship manager.

That entails that we are a major participant as ship owner in our core shipping sectors of container and bulk liquid transportation. We pursue opportunities in other shipping sectors or other business sectors – including raising the necessary equity in the capital markets through our own investment house – when deemed especially profitable or when necessary for the development of our ship management activities, the Group’s second core business after ship owning.

In ship management we strive to maintain our position as a worldwide leader and consistently provide excellent services with highest regard to safety, security and quality of operation – to our own fleet as well as to other ship owners fleets.

We run successful liner operations in specific niches and in partnerships with other medium sized liner companies. We want to show sustainable and profitable growth.

We own real estate for our own use, as a portfolio diversification and to hedge against risks in our other businesses.
