Seatrade’s origins date back to 1951 when Scheepvaartkantoor Groningen in the city of Groningen, The Netherlands commenced to operate. Seatrade Reefer Chartering´s activities in Russia started way back in 2009 when the company decided to get involved in operating its first direct liner service linking Chilean ports with St. Petersburg in cooperation with Baltic Reefer Lines. At the same time there was a lot of business going on between the USA and Brazil to Russia, mainly transporting frozen meat and poultry.
As of 2012 Seatrade’s regional activities expanded considerably. Effective as from 2013 Seatrade Baltic became officially the agent for the liner activities of Seatrade in Russia, which included Chile, South Africa and Morocco.
Such big and well known companies on the Russian market are entrusting their cargoes to us, like Magnit, X5 Retail, Lenta, Dixy, Miratorg, etc.
Seatrade Baltic is operating with a young and energetic team out of its office in St. Petersburg, acting as agents for the Seatrade Group of companies in Russia.
