The shipping company was founded in 1945 by Oskar Wehr who was born in Koblenz, over 500 kilometres away from Germany’s coast. The success story of the shipping company began with the acquisition of the motor sailer, ANNE, which was deployed in what were then the traditional sea routes of coastal shipping. Already in 1957 delivery was taken of the first newbuilding from the Sietas shipyard by the company, followed by further ships in the years after. In the middle of the 60s, Captain Oskar Wehr decided from then on to operate his fleet, which had now expanded to four ships, from “terra firma”. The newly-founded Oskar Wehr KG then managed the ships from its company headquarters in Hamburg-Altona. With the JANNE WEHR (1) 1968 the shipping company took delivery of its first vessel – a semi container ship – able to load up to 63 TEU. The first container ship newbuilding for the company was delivered in 1974. The JANNE WEHR (2) with its 280 TEU was then one of the modern ships in the feeder sector. Today she is still used as a singledecker on European routes. With the delivery of the Ro/Ro ships THOMAS WEHR and GABRIELE WEHR at the end of the 70s, the shipping company diversified its activities beyond coastal shipping. Since 1977 the company’s competitive chartering activities have been operated under their own broker house. Special emphasis is put on the international procurement of charter contracts for container ships and bulk carriers in all market segments. We work very closely with a large number of internationally reputable liner companies and operators worldwide.
