The enduring shipping tradition of the Ernst Russ Group dates back to 1893, the year in which the shipping company was founded by a native of Hamburg, Ernst Russ. Today, Ernst Russ sees itself as an investor in future-ready and sustainable ship projects with the aim of generating stable long-term income from the operation of the ocean vessels. The focus is on the interests of shareholders and investors to benefit from dividends and increases in value.
