J. Poulsen not impressed with Danish weapons code

The Danish shipping company J .Poulsen does not think that the proposal presented by the Danish Minister for Foreign Affairs, Villy Søvndal, on creating a code of conduct for the transportation of weapons and ammunition is a good idea. It will distort the competition for the Danish shipping companies operating with that kind of cargo.

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.
