Danish shipping companies have to get to the Arctic as soon as possible in order to develop competences in the complicated area, Jan Fritz Hansen, Deputy Director General in Danish Shipowners’ Association, tells ShippingWatch.

"It is definitely clear that I consider the Arctic as an important area to us. The Danish shipping industry must continuously look into doing different things than the other actors. The mere process of sailing from A to B is something other do as well and when the labour market is becoming globalised, an Indian or a Filipino sails or operates a shipping company just as well as a Dane. That is why we must constantly explore things more complicated than liner trade”, Jan Fritz Hansen says.
