Zeaborn Acquires CPO Tankschiffreederei

Enters Tanker Ship Management Sector

Breakbulk shipping line Zeaborn has entered the tanker ship management sector with the acquisition of Claus-Peter Offen Tankschiffreederei from CPO Group.

The transaction consolidates Zeaborn’s position as it focuses on expanding its service portfolio to the wet market for oil and product tankers. CPO Group will meanwhile focus on services as owner/manager of post-panmax container vessels.

“With CPO Tankers, a well-known and very reputable company joins our ship management activities. CPO Tankers, the management and the employees are a great fit for our organization, enabling us to expand our service portfolio with a first-class tanker management,” explained Ove Meyer and Jan-Hendrik Többe, the Zeaborn Group's managing partners.

Headquartered in Bremen in the north of Germany, Zeaborn is a global, integrated shipping company that operates a combined fleet of about 75 multipurpose vessels.
