Fueled by purpose

RABN is an independent and privately-owned modern shipping company, providing a well-equipped fleet for trading all over Baltic and also the North Sea. We exist to improve our customers’ business by delivering their cargo with our qualified and highly motivated crews, who are always ready to make an extra effort to meet your exact needs.

We are fueled by purpose. At RABN, we leave nothing halfway.

Our journey

RABN was founded in 2009 with an adventurous spirit and a visionary objective to make a difference in the field of maritime industry.

We were two captains with an ambitious mindset, who found themselves in front of a vast opportunity: to make their dreams come true. That time, it wasn’t the easiest days for the shipping industry, but Antti Partanen and Johan Liljeström decided to jump at the change and RABN – which stands for Rederi AB Nathalie – was founded.

Our company was named after our first vessel mv Nathalie, which happens to be also the very first ship in which we served together back in the days. Today, we proudly provide high-quality tonnage for our customers with a fleet of 5 dry cargo vessels, in sizes ranging from 2172 to 4135 DWT (deadweight ton).

We strive to be the best possible employer for our talented crews, who are the cornerstone of our company. Our success is built on the performance and devotion of our people.

To maintain vital and relevant in the shipping industry, we think it takes a result-oriented attitude, perseverance and never settling. The only way is forward.

Values that drive us forward

Open-minded thinking

We’re here to rethink. We don’t focus on the problem, we seek solutions and opportunities instead. Broadening our horizons and thinking outside the box is what we are in for.

Responsibility

We take pride in our responsible and sustainable culture. We think people are our most valuable asset and we strive to support one another.

Transparency

We embrace clear and open communication. We see honest dialogue as the key to a successful future.

It feels good to be appreciated. RABN has always been a bit more than just a job.

– Einar Kotka, captain
