The Wulff Family looks back on many years of shipping tradition:
in 1830, Capitain Hermann Wulff was at the helm of the lighter “Aurora”,
transporting coal from England and wood from Sweden.
By 1882 he sailed the brig “Kollmar” from South America to East
Asia. Today’s shipping company “Reederei Hermann Wulff”
has its origin in coastal shipping and was founded by Hermann Wulff in 1960.
He had decided to take up a nautical career five generations after his ancestor.
