Welcome


Schutzverein Deutscher Rheder was founded on 27th June 1901 in Hamburg by German shipowners as a mutual insurance association.

Supporting members in disputes arising out of charterparties is the core activity of the Association as a F. D. & D. underwriter (Freight, Demurrage & Defence). In these and in similar cases the Association provides in accordance with its Statutes legal defence and covers court and arbitration as well as lawyers' fees.
