A stronger Maersk Line result and improved profits from other shipping activities, including Maersk Tankers, in the 1st quarter 2014 compared to the 4th quarter 2013, says analyst RS Platou Markets ahead of the A.P.

This growth is supported by a slow but gradual improvement of the market conditions in the container industry, says Platou in an analysis on Thursday.
