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.
