KANT: Since 1978

Kant GmbH was founded in the Hanseatic City of Bremen on 28th February 1978 by Mr Axel Kant (died 2006). Over the past decades, the company has made a reputable name for itself in the shipping business through competence, reliability and its Hanseatic approach to work.

In February 2020, the brothers Niels and Jan Hankiewicz took over Kant GmbH with a view to continuing the company with these very same values, coupled with modernity and a wealth of know-how.

Kant GmbH is a member of the “NH Group”; further companies are Niels Hankiewicz Chartering GmbH, NH Shipping GmbH & Co. KG and Meram Schiffahrtskontor Rolf Hankiewicz GmbH.
