Synergy Marine Germany GmbH, a subsidiary of the Synergy Group, signed an agreement to manage part of the bulk carrier fleet owned by Oldendorff Carriers, one of Germany’s foremost shipowners and one of the world’s leading dry bulk operators.

"When we place our vessels with a third-party manager we only do so when we are confident they will deliver the benchmarked technical excellence that both Oldendorff and our customers expect," said Dexter Jeremiah, Managing Director Operations of Oldendorff Carriers. "Synergy is renowned as a quality manager with a great safety and operations record. As we look ahead to the challenges facing shipping including decarbonization and how to best implement the latest technology as shipping digitalizes, we know Synergy will also be a fantastic technical thought partner."
