Nordic Shipping was founded in 1985 by Jürgen Graeber as Germany’s first bunker broker, at the center of German oil trading at that time, the “City Nord” of Hamburg, neighbouring with major oil companies such as BP, Shell, Wintershall DEA and Esso.

His vision of a provider of comprehensive bunkering services strictly at customer’s requirements is even more valid today than 39 years ago.

When Mr. Graeber retired in 1998, Nordic Shipping was converted into a private limited company and the registered office was transferred to its current location in the city center of Hamburg.

In 2008 Thomas Petersen assumed ownership of the company, which is looking forward to celebrate its 40th anniversary in August 2025.

Ever unchanged customer satisfaction is the standard daily business is done to.
