Maersk Tankers is working on another business unit that will complement the latest expansion of the tanker company's activities, ZeroNorth, which already has 1,500 vessels connected to its digital platform.
For the time being, the company will only confirm that a new business leg is in the pipeline and that it will likely be presented this week or next. CEO Christian M. Ingerslev will not comment on any further details in terms of the concept, but does confirm that the carrier, which used to form an important pillar in the A.P. Møller - Maersk group, is working to launch further initiatives aimed at broadening the scope of activities.
