The Republic of Cyprus is one of the leading locations of the dynamic global shipping industry. Heinrich Schoeller founded "Columbia Shipmanagement" in 1978 and led it to become one of the world's largest shipping companies. Ship management is offered for almost all types of ships. The owners of the ships come from all parts of the world.
The book "Columbia Shipmanagement" not only presents all of the nearly 1,000 ships in the shipping company's history, but also all of the subsidiaries and other interesting details.
More than 400 page outlines drawn by Karsten Kunibert Krüger-Kopiske and over 120 photos make the book a highlight of maritime literature. With the help of the ships depicted, the development of worldwide merchant shipping over the last 40 years can be traced.
All three authors are experienced players in the shipping industry and are presenting their first joint book.
The book is published in English throughout.
