Lifting instead of pulling

The recently arrived reachstacker had its first use in our stevedoring department in Kiel. The container reloading from a truck onto a flat went fast and smoothly. The colleagues are looking forward to many more reloadings.

Maiden call of Queen Victoria

On July 17th the cruise ship Queen Victoria visited the port of Kiel for the first time. Jens B. Knudsen presented an engraved tin plate from Sartori & Berger to Captain Simon Paul Love at the plaque & key ceremony. We wish the ship, its guests and crew a safe journey at all times and look forward to a return to the Kiel Fjord next year.

Color Line with additional freight ferry

We look forward to the growth of the Color Line fleet. As of January 2019 an additional freight ferry will be operated on the Oslo-Kiel route. In addition to the daily ferry departures of the Color Fantasy and Color Magic the approximately 155m long freight ferry will be handled three times a week by our stevedoring as well as our freight and forwarding department in Kiel.
