Actual Positions

Reederei Erwin Strahlmann GmbH & Co. KG


Reederei Erwin Strahlmann was founded by Erwin Strahlmann in 1988.

He started by taking care of commercial shipping matters for a number of close Captain-Owners.
Later on Mr. Strahlmann became unlimited partner of those Owners and took over the remaining shares.


Today the company is represented by around 45 employees in the main office in Brunsbüttel/Germany. Together they take care of approximately 55 vessels ranging in the size of 2500 up-to 9000 Dwat.


This fleet is served by around 600 seafarers. Whilst about 15 pct of the fleet is employed under time-charter contracts, the remaining part, being mainly bulk carriers, are serving demands within European ports under voyage charters.

The chartering matters are mainly being followed up by the recently formed broker R.E.S. Chartering GmbH based in Hamburg, headed by Mike Strahlmann the founder's son.


A new building program was started in 2003 for the renewal of the fleet. Since then more than 25 new buildings have joined the permanently growing fleet.
Caused by the increasing fleet and the subsequent required additional work force the Reederei decided in 2008 to built a new modern office premise in Brunsbüttel at the banks of the Kiel Canal. Thus since March 2011 the company's different shipmanagent departments could be placed under one roof.

The inspection department is managed by Holger Strahlmann, the founder's brother, together with Axel Neve. For repair works the Reederei Strahlmann Branch Office Szczecin Sp. z. o.o. was establish in 2002. This office has there beside their office staff always about 60 technicians and electricians employed, taking care of whatever repairs are required, working out of a rented dock-space as well as having mobile repairs teams being able to assist the fleet by boarding them in any load- or discharge-ports within short notice. 


The crewing company for whole Strahlmann group is external company Alster Marine from Hamburg. In cooperation with internal part of our Company - Strahlmann Crewing Agency - they keep control over all matters concerning employing seafarers on board of our all ships.


With the help of 3 Warehouses and several trucks, nearly 95 % of the delivered spare parts/provisions/oils/greases etc. - so basically all needs for the life on board and the daily works - are brought by the R.E.S. Group to the different vessels in nearly all European ports. Same secures quality control as well as cost efficiency of the provided goods delivered on board.


Together with the 3 main tools (Flying Engineers, Warehouses - their deliveries and the Technical Department), the shipmanagement secures the best possible way  to run the vessels in a good condition at reasonable costs.
