Maersk Tankers to focus on commercial management with new strategy

In a new Maersk Tankers strategy, CEO Christian Ingerslev aims to have 300 ships under commercial management in 2024. Since the current number is 220, ShippingWatch asks Ingerslev about the ambition level of the new target then.

"You need to look at how the tanker market evolves, and what the market expectations are for the upcoming years. In that light, I think it's an ambitious goal. It will be an increase of 10 percent annually," Maersk Tankers CEO Christian Ingerslev tells ShippingWatch regarding the target to have 300 ships under commercial management in 2024. | Photo: Maersk Tankers

Following the sale of the technical management business in October last year to Synergy Group, Maersk Tankers has continued its transformation to a service company, thus moving even further away from the old tanker line founded in 1928.

What remains is commercial management of tankers for other carriers that hire CEO Christian M. Ingerslev and his 293 colleagues to operate their ships, not least with an intention to maximize earnings.
