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.
