The return of a famous name in shipping

The name Ellerman has been synonymous with shipping since the 19th century. Founded originally by John Reeves Ellerman (1862-1933), the company became one of the biggest and most recognisable shipping lines of the British Merchant Navy. By the early 21st century, following a series of changes of ownership, the much-storied name had disappeared below the horizon. Until now.

In 2021 Ellerman City Liners relaunched, with eyes firmly set on providing a customer-focussed container shipping service underpinned by leading-edge technology and a highly experienced management team.
