Hugo Stinnes, one of Germany's most influential and controversial entrepreneurs, founded the Transatlantic Shipping Company in 1907.
In 1992 Hugo Stinnes established a joint venture and Deutsche Seereederei (DSR) - DSR/Stinnes West Indies Service from Hamburg to Mexico and West Coast South America.
Today Hugo Stinnes Schiffahrt GmbH operating from its head office in Rostock is an independent shipping line focused on niche markets, operating a fortnightly multipurpose liner service from North Europe to Mexico and the US Gulf/ Caribbean and a weekly fully containerised service to/from South Africa.
