Hafnia: More ships could help realize U.S. ambitions

Being present in a market helps to grow the business, which is why Hafnia Management is working to establish an office in the United States. But the fleet is still too small to realize the ambitions, says CEO Anders Engholm.

More MR ships are needed if Hafnia Management's ambitions to open an office in the United States are to be realized. The shipping company currently operates two pools. The Hafnia pool has 17 MR ships, from 30,000 dwt to 53,000, and for this pool in partcular there is a lot of trade to be found in the Unietd States, where 50 percent of the business comes from.

"The problem is just that 17 ships aren't enough to justify the opening of a new office, as there are a lot of expenses that come with opening an office," says Anders Engholm, CEO of Hafnia Management, to ShippingWatch.
