Our history

Navalis Shipping was founded in 1995 to support the shipowning activities of Schiffahrtskontor tom Wörden (founded 1911) with its own chartering outfit. Since then, all ships of the shipping group of the family tom Wörden are employed by Navalis Shipping.

A customer network was built with all major forest industry concerns in Northern Europe. Apart from wood products (logs, pulp, paper), we also transport grains, fertilizer, split and other bulk cargoes. The own fleet is contantly modernised and expanded through purchases and newbuildings.

Also in Container shipping, we are active since founding. The container fleet is as well as the Baltic fleet steadily modernised and expanded according to market needs. Several newbuilding projects were contracted in Europe and the Far East. Nowadays, the container ships are employed with renowned charterers worldwide.
