Maersk now has full control of its entire tanker fleet

Maersk Tankers has no intentions of selling its fleet of major product tankers following the breakup with Torm, Maersk Tankers CCO Christian Inglerslev tells ShippingWatch.

Maersk and Torm's decision to discontinue their 13-year-old pool collaboration covering a total of 28 product tankers - the so-called LR2 pool - was primarily caused by Maersk Tankers' desire to gain full commercial control of its ships in the segments where the carrier operates, says Maersk Tankers CCO Christian Ingerslev in a comment to ShippingWatch.

The statement follows the announcement on Monday that Maersk and Torm will discontinue their LR2 pool, established by the two carriers in 2001.
