40 years of experience in delivering excellent transport solutions

In March 1977 the founders of Unifeeder, Peter Bohnsen, and Tonny D. Paulsen, turned their strong faith in the feeder concept into reality by chartering a vessel capable of carrying the equivalent of 100 20’ containers. With their well-rounded background in shipping and international transportation, the two Danes laid the foundation for what would become a wide business platform. Today Unifeeder is a provider of the biggest and best-connected Feeder & Shortsea network in Europe

Vision for Feeder services

To be preferred partner and largest feeder operator in Europe


Our objectives are to build on our leading market position and expand the market share in our existing territories, enlarge the contents of our products and grow into new geographies. 
We will achieve this by focusing on our core competencies of providing our customers with unrivaled service, frequency, reliability, and innovative solutions. 


Vision for Shortsea services

To be a leading European intermodal service provider

To grow our door-to-door business through continued land-to-sea conversion of intra-European transportation and extend our service delivery with increased multimodality. 
We will achieve this by increasing the market awareness of the competitiveness of an environmentally friendly and safe shortsea transport vis-à-vis road haulage and rail.
