Nordic Hamburg Shipmanagement was founded in 2006 by Dr. Rowil Ponta and Richard Grube. The business concept today is the same as it was back then: to provide high-quality ship management services to our clients as an equal partner with full transparency. Having a small, efficient and flat organization with a team of highly competent, motivated and dedicated staff makes us a reliable partner for all requirements in the global shipping industry.

The business idea and philosophy proved to be very successful, and today we provide a full range of ship management services to various clients around the world. The fleet comprises more than 25 vessels, which we manage through our head office in Hamburg and our fully owned and controlled branch offices in Odessa (Ukraine), Manila (Philippines), Shanghai and Hong Kong (China). 

Guoyu Nordic Shipping (GNS) is a successful joint venture between two dynamic companies – Guoyu Group and Nordic Hamburg Group. The Chinese Guoyu Group is an established player in the steel trading, shipping and shipbuilding industries. And Nordic Hamburg Group offers a range of services, spanning project development, financing and full operation of a fast-growing fleet of state-of-the-art dry cargo and container vessels.

The financial strength and shipbuilding expertise of the Guoyu Group are the perfect complement to Nordic Hamburg’s profile as a successful one-stop shipping services provider with wide-ranging experience and an established network in the global shipping market. GNS has been expanding into international waters since it was set up in 2011, and has quickly established a reputation in the global shipping market for its technology leadership, exceptional service levels and care for the environment.
