Montan Shipping

‘Montan Shipping GmhH & Co KG’ is a German firm established at Hamburg.  According to the ‘Company Profile’ on its website: “Montan Shipping mainly acts as chartering agent/broker for various national and international industrial clients. The company's most important activities are world-wide chartering on the dry cargo sector, all agency matters at the ports of Hamburg and Stade and via subagents at all other German ports as well as stevedoring/cargo handling of bulk cargoes at Hamburg.”

Founded in 1922, the Lehnkering period over, Montan has been part of Peter W. Lampke, a North German shipping group, since 2000 and shares the same address. Listed on the site are agency activities, general husbandry services (information, clearance, waste disposal, etc.), drydocking and repair assistance, crew matters; also stevedoring and chartering (bulk of various kinds). Shown on the site as a drawing, the house flag is orange bearing a dark blue logo consisting of
initials, fimbriated white.   Said intials are a highly stylized ‘S’ nestling above an ‘M’ all within what might be a thin ‘C’ perhaps standing for ‘Co.’

Reddish orange is the field of a variant – a table flag this time – offered on German eBay as item no. 290074500435 (end 27 Jan 2007) put up by “shipflag”.   The initialled logo is black and here the ‘M’ bears a ‘T’ connected to it standing for ‘Montan Transport[-Gesellschaft]’. This must have been the forerunner of Montan Shipping.
