MAGELLAN Chartering Services GmbH

Chartering brokers I Commercial managers I Shipping agents

Magellan Chartering Services GmbH was founded in 1992. As an exclusive and trusted broker, we are an experienced specialist in chartering, technical management and the purchase and sale of commercial seagoing vessels. With almost 30 years’ experience in chartering, Magellan Chartering Services specialises in product and crude oil tankers of all sizes. Container and bulk chartering as well as commercial management are also part of our portfolio.

Crude oil and product tanker management | Container ships | Dry cargo tonnage

Magellan Chartering Services started out as an independent shipbroker specialising in container and bulk tonnage. Over time, and with the change of personnel in charge, core expertise has shifted towards product and crude oil tankers.
However, container and bulk tonnage are still part of our core competence.

We currently manage a fleet of crude oil and product tankers, container ships and dry cargo tonnage as exclusive and in-house brokers for Dr. Peters Group (www.dr-peters.de) and its subsidiary DS Schiffahrt (www.ds-schiffahrt.de) as well as DS Tankers (www.ds-tankers.com).
