ForestWave, via its wholly owned subsidiary Schulte & Bruns Nederland, cooperates closely with Schulte & Bruns GmbH &Co. KG. The fleet commercially managed by the combination of ForestWave and Schulte & Bruns, consists of 35 multi purpose vessels in the range of 5,000 to 12,500 ton dwt. In the network of Schulte & Bruns we have offices in Hamburg, Groningen, Breda (NL), Newcastle (UK) and Vigo (ES).
We operate a semi liner service between Baltic and Mediterranean of 4 to 6 sailings per month.
We offer owners either commercial management (voyage chartering) or time charter contracts on the basis of our and Schulte & Bruns’ cargo contracts. Our contract coverage is roughly 50%.
In respect of cargo contracts we focus on break bulk cargoes (forest products) and project cargoes.
Fred Diepeveen, having 30 years of experience in this segment, is responsible for the chartering activities.
Since 2019 we have been awarded the ISO 9001:2015 certification.
