The thought of creating an optional code of conduct for Danish shipping companies shipping weapons and ammunition is far from praised by J. Poulsen Shipping. A small part of the company is involved in the transportation of ammunition.
“Then we will be talking about ethics and morals. Of course it is okay, but we cannot make an optional code of conduct only covering Denmark. Then, competition will be distorted. The competition is global and if we are to spend time finding out if the cargo will be approved every time, we will have a weaker starting point than our competitors from other countries”, Managing Director of J. Poulsen Shipping, Finn J. Poulsen, tells ShippingWatch.
