Carrier53 has been established out of Hamburg, Germany – a NVOCC that specialises in the transport of 53 ft containers, bulk and general cargo from China to the USA.

Carrier53 operates liner services between China and USA.

To date the carrier has successfully completed 39 voyages on its weekly liner service. Carrier53 operates six general cargo vessels between 32.500-38,000 dwt; it was first formulated by Lotus Container Group and German shipping company Schulte & Bruns, before being spun out as an independent company.

“The shipping of 53 ft containers became increasingly difficult or even impossible during Covid-19 due to the collapse of international supply chains and the dramatic shortage of vessel space,” said Jan Frahnert, managing partner at Carrier53. “This prompted us to establish a specialised liner service with the know-how and network of our current team of experts. The response from the industry was enormous, encouraging us to expand the business model and manifest it with the establishment of a new liner shipping company.”
