The towering fuel costs have completely changed the market conditions and finances of the tank shipping companies, says CEO Joe Angelo of the international association of oil- and chemical tank ships, Intertanko, who finds the Maersk Tankers initiative concerning a new industry solution that will provide the shipping companies with better compensation to make up for the major fluctuations of bunker prices interesting.
