Costamare, Peter Döhle Launch Blue Net Chartering JV

Greece-based ship owner Costamare and Germany’s operator Peter Döhle Schiffahrts-KG have teamed up in a joint venture named Blue Net Chartering.

Headquartered in Hamburg, the chartering brokerage joint venture company started operations on February 1, 2018. Under the JV, the parties will provide brokerage services for a fleet of 220 container vessels with an aggregate capacity of about 1.1 million TEUs.

They would offer exclusive charter brokerage services for the vessels managed by Costamare, Peter Döhle and third party customers.

Blue Net Chartering aims to provide “best-in-class employment opportunities for containership owners,” according to Costamare.

“The main focus of the new company is maintaining and enhancing long-term relationships between its customers and leading liner shipping companies.”
