Special terms used in the shipping business often are cryptic and difficult to understand. This glossary gives explanations to the most common terms used in our business.

A term or definition mentioned herein does not neccessarily reflect the meaning or interpretation applicable to a specific business concluded with Rickmers-Linie.
We therefore recommend to check the correct meaning of a term in our quotations and/or bookings with
