The company was founded in 1995 by Mr. Torsten Westphal and the two
Haren shipping companies Wessels and Jüngerhans as a separate chartering
company for container vessels (Arkon Shipping) and for the very special
segment of heavy lift vessels (Arkon Shipping & Projects).

In addition, chartering for external shipping companies plays an
increasingly important role, so that Arkon today manages an exclusive
fleet of more than 160 vessels worldwide, making it one of the leading
names in the industry.
Due to the demand of partners and clients, Arkon has since 2007 with the
aid of a competent network comprising ship designers, shipyards,
shipping companies and financial firms proven themselves in the
development and management of new-building projects in order to be able
to offer customized solutions for the sea freight market of the future.
ARKON additionally assumes the purchase and sale of tonnage on behalf
of their most important clients.
