A new generation
Throughout his life, Otto Stinnes’ main focus has always been on shipping. To secure the shipping company’s future, he appointed Mathias Stinnes, a nephew from the extended family, as his successor.
When Mathias Stinnes took over one year later, he decided to continue the Ocean Line in old Stinnes Tradition and also partnered up again with H. Schuldt., calling ports like Hamburg, Rotterdam, Antwerp and ports in the Gulf of Mexico. But instead of using own vessels, he chartered vessels for this service.
When the Cooperation of the shipping companies Hugo Stinnes and H. Schuldt ended in the late 80’s, their activities were split as well, with Stinnes calling only the Mexican ports and H. Schuldt. only the US ports in the Gulf of Mexico.
