In January 1998 the UCA United Canal Agency GmbH was founded by the shareholders Andreas Hansen GmbH, Hamburg, the United Baltic Corporation Ltd., a subsidiary of Andrew Weir Shipping Ltd., London and Messrs. Zerssen & Co. GmbH, Kiel.

The UCA United Canal Agency GmbH is operating from both ends of the Kiel-Canal with offices in Kiel-Holtenau and Brunsbüttel, employing the staff of more than 50 persons of the former three well-known and old-established Kiel-Canal agencies Karl Grammerstorf Kiel-Kanal GmbH, United Baltic Corporation GmbH and Zerssen & Co. GmbH.

Operating with highly motivated and experienced staff we are offering the very best service and the most competitive rates for your vessels passing the Kiel-Canal and/or calling at the ports of Schleswig-Holstein.
