Since its foundation in 1898, chartering has been one of the most important pillars of Royal Wagenborg. As one of the largest players in the area of chartering in northwest Europe, Wagenborg now undertakes the chartering for one in three ships that fly the Dutch flag.

Wagenborg offers tailormade shipping solutions. The ships in our entire fleet are flexible and meet the increasingly more complex transport needs of large and small transhipment companies. The transport chain is composed of a range of vessels - from coastal shipping with distant domestic destinations to northern and southern European and Atlantic routes.


The chartering department deals with a range of dry cargo, including:

- Ore and minerals;

- Coal and coke;

- Grains and derivatives;

- Fertiliser;

- Big Bags and break-bulk.

- Containers

Wagenborg is particularly specialised in the transport of:

- Forestry products, including wood, paper, and cellulose;

- Steel products, including pipes, steel plates, rolls, and rails.

Project cargo, including:

- Industrial construction projects;

- Dredging equipment;

- Steel tanks;

- Offshore equipment;

- Yachts;

- Cranes.

Within the fast growing container transports, Wagenborg Shipping specialises in the so-called container feeder services. We ensure the transport of containers to more specific ports and offer solutions for the transport of containers for worldwide container line services.

Ice Navigation

Sailing in icy conditions is an out and out specialisation of Wagenborg Shipping. Our many years of experience in ice navigation in the Baltic and Scandinavian waters are now also applied in the Canadian waters, including the Great Lakes.

Within the offshore industry, Wagenborg has acquired many loyal partners. In October 1998, Wagenborg started provisioning oil and gas platforms in the Caspian Sea with two ice breaking supply vessels.

Alternative Rigging Systems

We construct a gantry crane on top of an existing construction like a drilling rig, which consists of lightweight gantries, mast parts and winches. In those cases were cranes are unusable, unavailable or extemely expensive we can use our in-house developed alternative rigging system. However, even though it is light weight, this system still enables us to hoist weights up to 15 tonnes.
