Our History

Ultramar began in 1952 under merchant captain Albert von Appen, when he took the helm and began this voyage by providing maritime agency services to vessels calling at Chilean ports that belonged to two German shipping companies, Hamburg Amerika Linie (Hapag) and Norddeutscher Lloyd.

The founder of our company had a determined entrepreneurial spirit and together with the support of good employees, he forged the development and expansion of the company, leaving as a legacy his business philosophy based on our values of integrity, excellence, passion and safety.
