The expert bureau was founded in 1968 with headquarters in Bremerhaven by Captain Gerhard Bessau. Captain H-J. Moeller joined the expert bureau in 1972 and took over the office in 1988.

The field of activities changed over the years parallel with the developments in shipping, from the cargo transport on conventional ships, to the container trade on special vehicle carriers.

The dimensions and weights of cargoes to be transported steadily increased. Therefore the challenges connected with planning and managing such transports have also increased.

At the present officially appointed and sworn experts and engineers of various disciplines work at Möller Survey.
