Hamburg-based shipbroker Hanse Bereederung is making the most of booming boxship markets as it battles for a slice of rising asset and charter levels.

Bereederung is part of the German-controlled but Cyprus-based Schoeller Group, which operates about 40 containerships of between 1,200 teu and 2,800 teu, multipurpose (MPP) vessels of between 19,000 dwt and 31,000 dwt, and heavylifters.

Claudia Paschkewitz, managing director of operations, told TradeWinds that the buoyant markets made a pleasant change.
