Shipbrokers since 1954
The Company was established in 1954 as Oy Pipping & Thun AB, active in cargo booking and chartering of dry cargo vessels. In 1960 Mr Ole Thun and Tor Pipping split up and Oy Thun & Co was founded.
In the early 1970’s Thun & Co became exclusive brokers for chartering and Sale & Purchase activities and also for all cargo booking ex. Finland for account Bore Steamship. At that time Thunship introduced the Sale & Purchase activity as the first broker in Finland also by performing competitive transactions.
During the 1980’s, Thunship (Thun & Co) further established their role as a competitive Sale and Purchase broker, handling numerous transactions for the Finnish ship Owners. In 1988 Oy Thun & Co Ab was renamed Oy Thunship Ab.
During the early 1990’s Thunship’s role in the shipping industry changed to focus more on Timechartering and Sale & Purchase and less cargo bookings, and during these years Thunship developed many strong relationships together with their good shipowners / charterers / operators and co-brokers.
Today Thunship continue to focus on their core business, Time chartering and Sale & Purchase of merchant vessels, including but not limited to ice-classed Roro-, Ropax/Ferry-, Container- and MPP/Coastal Vessels.
