This website will try to present the Norwegian Merchant Fleet from the years 1850 and up to 2020.
I am a 55-year old man who started in Wilh. Wilhelmsens Rederi, Tonsberg in 1981 as a cook-apprentice. Been working in employments in connection with the Maritime Life ever since.
I have been with shippingcompanies like Wilh. Wilhelmsen, Olaf Pedersen's Rederi, Bergesen dy, Norgas (I.M. Skaugen) and Star Shipping. Since 2001 I have been working as an agent for China Shipping Container Lines, and as a Freightbroker for Air and Seafreight.
The Norwegian Merchant Fleet have through "all" times been well known world-wide, and today the Norwegian Fleet is one of the most spesialized in the world. There have been hundreds of small and large companies, and I will try to present some of the on this site.
