Even though Maersk Broker in late June had to call off the announced dry bulk partnership with fellow broker Lightship, Maersk Broker's dry bulk ambitions remain very much intact. In fact, the ambition to become both bigger and better in dry bulk has grown even further compared to one year ago when the first initial talks began with Lightship concerning a merger of the two players' bulk activities in joint venture LMB Chartering, explains CEO Anders Hald at the Maersk Broker offices in Copenhagen's north harbor.

Claes Devantier - who until recently served as co-CEO of LMB Chartering alongside Lightship's Morten Have - is also present at the office. He heads Maersk Broker's dry bulk chartering business.
