Maersk Drilling moves jobs from Norway to Poland to cut costs
Maersk Drilling will eliminate jobs in Norway and instead move them to Poland, where costs are lower. The employees are very displeased with the decision, which was made at headquarters in Denmark and without the employees being informed, says union representative Frode Larsen.
René Kofod-Olsen is V.Group's fourth CEO in just three years. The many changes have been a distraction and have led to several wrong decisions, he tells ShippingWatch. The mandate from the owner is to future-proof the company, and for this he is willing to make both selections and rejections.
Only 46 percent of Maersk's vessels arrive on time, which is a service level that Maersk, according to CCO Vincent Clerc, is "dismayed by", even if the industry reliability average is only around one in three ships.
