Reliable German merchant fleet statistics

 

The Bundesamt für Seeschifffahrt und Hydrographie (Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency) maintains the German shipping register and is the central registration office for all German seagoing ships. This includes also ships registered temporarily under a foreign flag (bareboat charter).

The following statistics, kept by the BSH, include all seagoing ships of 100 GT and above, registered in the German shipping registers:

These statistics provide monthly data of the German merchant fleet, starting from the corresponding month of the preceding calendar year. Subdivided by kinds of ships (e.g. dry cargo ships) and further broken down into ship types (e.g. container ships), the numbers and gross tonnage (GT) for the individual ship types are shown.
The numbers and GT for ships registered temporarily under a foreign flag (bareboat charter) are shown each as a total at the end of the table. The foreign flags flown by these ships are shown with the statistics below.
