Emder Schlepp-Betrieb GmbH – Efficiency, safety, readiness

In addition, international contacts provide possible solutions for all requirements for assist­­­ing ocean-­going shipping and carrying project cargo of all kinds by sea.

With its experienced and well-trained employees, Emder Schlepp-Betrieb GmbH is a competent partner for shipping companies and shipyards at the port on the river Ems and on the entire German coast. Assisting at launchings, towing pontoons and delivering new ships are part of the company’s range of services, as is carrying people and materials and working on maritime building sites.
