Österreichischer Lloyd Seereederei (Cyprus) Ltd’s slogan, “Steaming Ahead”, conjures up images of a mighty vessel slicing through the azure waters of the
ocean. The phrase also brings to mind the confidence and determination with which OELSR has developed its operations over the course of its rich 178-year
history. After the firm’s entire relocation in 2001 to Cyprus, it has become a key component of Cyprus’ attractive maritime sector, both facilitating and advocating for its development.
OELSR owns and manages its small, although very strong and sturdy young fleet of 7 vessels (average age of 6.5 yrs), all proudly flying the reputable Cyprus flag from its premises close to the port of Limassol.
With an accumulation of diverse knowledge and experience with all types of seagoing transport, Container Ships, MPP’s, Bulk Carriers, Reefer Vessels,
Chemical/Oil Tankers, Cruise Vessels, PCC’s, the Company is more focused and specialised in the MPP Segment.
