Danish companies’ order program fall by 8 billion kroner

The Danish Foreign Ministry and EU have become more attentive to the shipping companies’ opinions on embargoes. That benefits the shipping companies since the consideration for the industry is more marked than previously when embargoes are passed, says The Danish Shipowners’ Association.

Denmark’s merchant navy has increased with 14 ships in a year and is now for the first time since 1995 above 600 ships with a total of 603 ships. The order entrance of new ships, however, has fallen by a value of 8 billion Danish kroner, shows a new publication from The Danish Shipowners’ Association.

Last year, the Danish merchant navy could boasts of the largest ever tonnage of 14.5 TDW. That number has this year fallen to 13.9 TWD due to sales of few large ships, while the number of ships has increased from 589 last year to 603 this year.
