CPO Rebrands To Zeaborn Ship Management Tanker

Zeaborn Progresses Expansion Plans

Breakbulk shipping line Zeaborn has rebranded its subsidiary CPO Tankers to Zeaborn Ship Management Tanker.

The group acquired CPO, or Claus-Peter Offen Tankschiffreederei, in June as part of a move to expand its service portfolio to the wet market for oil and product tankers. The combined technically managed fleet of Zeaborn Ship Management comprises about 150 container and bulk cargo ships, multipurpose vessels and tankers.

“Following our strategy to further consolidate the shipping industry and to expand our services as an integrated and globally active shipping company, entering the tanker management segment was a logical step,” said Jan-Hendrik Többe, managing partner of Zeaborn Group.
Headquartered in Bremen in the north of Germany, Zeaborn has become one of the largest integrated shipping companies in the world, and a leading breakbulk carrier thanks to its acquisition of Rickmers-Line, Rickmers Shipmanagement, E.R. Schiffahrt, HC Chartering, and Intermarine among others.
