HARTEL – Your black sea partner

From our office in Oostvoorne our dedicated staff operates a modern Dutch fleet of 6 identical coaster-mpp tweendeckers (Damen Combi Freighter 3850) with removable tweendecks – full cover – and bulkheads. We ship almost all commodities which do not fit into the standard containers.

We invite you to step on board with us in the knowledge that your cargo is in good hands with our experienced crew and explore the possibilities of our regular service from Baltic/Continent/UK/Ireland to Medditerian/Black Sea including Sea of Azov v.v.

An open (sea)waterway from Continent to Black Sea without borders and 365 days a year open for traffic. Our goal is to stay flexible in the possibilities from small (break)bulk (part)cargoes upto complex and time-bound projects. In order to achieve this we do not have long term contracts in our portfolio and therefore we constantly operate in the spot market to give the best possible performance to our clients.

In this high demanding market with rapid changes we found our key of success in using the knowledge of different independent shipping companies (Hartel – Hudig & Veder and Kroezen Ship’s support) who joint forces in one group (Vliet Shipping) and take care of the financing, insurance, maintenance, crewing and operations in order to keep the fleet up and running and in perfect condition.

Hartel, your Black Sea partner since 1990, almost 3 decades a reliable breakbulk service to and from the Black Sea.
