Enjoying life as never before in harmony

And the day by the sea

in Events by

What is it like to have fleets from all over the world in your hands?

It is Thursday evening, June 8, in the atrium of the Konrad Zuse Building at the University of Rostock. A fresh breeze blows through the extensive hall while the summer seems to have arrived outside. Students bustle between the doors, slowly filling the room. Then it’s time, punctually at 5 p.m., for the International Career Day to open.

We from FleetMon have already set up our booths with the other companies and can’t wait for the program to start.

FleetMon meets German Federal Bank

in Press by

“You can see all the ships in the world here?”, “All in real-time?”, “We never expected that!”


Yes, we at FleetMon can see all the ships in the world in real-time. And what else we can do and how we are revolutionizing the maritime logistics industry at our headquarters in Rostock were presented to representatives of the German Federal Bank.

Once a year, part of the German Federal Bank’s head office visits a local office. This year it is MV’s turn. Together with the German Federal Bank Rostock branch manager, Peter Kolzarek, 13 employees visited us on the afternoon of June 8 to look at our offices and learn more about FleetMon. As expected, we scored first with our unbeatable view over the Rostock city harbor. After a short coffee and water break, Peter Kolzarek took the word and thanked us for the invitation: “Even though we live in the north and are at home here in Rostock, nobody expected what is done here in these offices. We are delighted to be here.”
