HISTORY

BALTIMAR Schiffahrt & Transport GmbH was founded on 01st August 1990 as one of the first private-owned shipping agencies in the Port of Rostock in re-united Germany. At the beginning our company was a joint venture between tanker owners John T. Essberger GmbH & Co. KG, Hamburg and INTRAC Handelsgesellschaft mbH from former GDR. After breakup of INTRAC in year 1993, JTE was the only shareholder of BALTIMAR. In 1997 they decided to sell 50% to Norsk Hydro A/S, which acted as our shareholder until 2002. Another change within our company structure was necessary. UCA United Canal Agency GmbH, Kiel became the new                            50% shareholder. JTE sold it's shares in year 2009 to Vopak Agencies, Rotterdam which is acting together with UCA until nowadays.
