Feederlines BV was founded in the year 1995 as the Dutch subsidiary of the German Hartmann Group. Nowadays the company is owned and led by her former general director, Jan van der Laan. 

From the beginning, Feederlines BV aimed at the ever expanding Short Sea sector. Dry cargo vessels from 2,500 up to 9,000 DWT and container feeder vessels from 290 TEU up to 750 TEU were built in the Netherlands, China, Rumania and Bulgaria. Feederlines BV has given the shipping company a further lift together with the chartering organization MTL in Duisburg. A strong position was built with the transport of forest products. Furthermore, regular services are provided for a large number of operators. 

The shipping company’s success can undoubtedly be attributed to the choice for employing well-trained staff, both in the office as well as on the vessels and the substantial automation of the many processes that play a part in transport. 

With devotion and commitment our well educated team works towards the same goal every day: taking care of the vessels in our management. The basic principle in that matter is that charterers can count on good quality tonnage which is available at all times. 

During our existence – now more than 20 years – the increase of the fleet has gone hand in hand with an increase of professionalism and quality. Now in the year 2016 we are a shipping company that looks proudly on to the past and with full dedication towards our future.
