Operational and technical management

The Rickmers Group’s service spectrum encompasses the entire lifecycle of ships and therefore also their operational and technical management. Rickmers Shipmanagement stands for safe, efficient and smooth ship operation.

Rickmers’ shipmanagement stands out thanks to especially transparent operational costs, which it declares in operational and financial reporting to international standards. In order to reduce bunker consumption and CO2 emissions, the Group proactively supports owners and charterers in energy-efficient operation by training the crew and carrying out technical retrofits to the ships.

Progressive maintenance management combines the execution of all proposed construction modifications with the regulatory docking dates. For charter customers this means high operational availability and cost efficiency – and for the shipowner, maintaining or increasing the value of the ship. 

The Rickmers Group pays particular attention to its selection processes for new employees and to the ongoing training of management staff. The DNV GL 5 Star Excellence Certificate honours Rickmers’ shipmanagement for the highest operational standards, and certifies that the Rickmers Group undertakes efforts beyond statutory requirements towards the safe, environmentally friendly and sustainable operation of ships.
