A Reliable Partner – for 100 Years

Our roots are in the Port of Hamburg. 100 years ago, Gerd Buss founded the namesake stevedoring outfit in the
Port of Hamburg. Ever since, Buss has been transferring its skills to related business areas, over and over again.

With the determination to stay in the market and to keep developing, Buss, in their almost 100 years of business history, has again and again managed to identify additional, related fields of business. Today, this internationally operating group of companies is pooling expertise in the areas of port services, logistics real estate, ship's management and operation, container leasing, and investments in the maritime industry, all under one roof. Up to this day, this third generation owner-managed house embodies particularly two characteristic traits: entrepreneurial spirit and innovative strength.
