DNB's shipping customers have in recent years been kept busy by the many international environmental regulations introduced for shipping. The specific implementation date is January 1st, where the sulfur emission requirements will come into force, but ballast water and nitrous oxide have also required a lot of attention from the carriers. And DNB trusts - and expects - that carriers will not cheat on these requirements.
"We have long-term relationships with our customers, and they are major players in the shipping industry. As their relations bank we both trust and expect that they will comply with all the environmental regulations," Knut Ola Skotvedt, DNB Senior Vice President responsible for shipping, offshore and logistics, tells ShippingWatch.
