Maersk Tankers' pool has lost vessels from two prominent US carriers because the results did not meet expectations. And this happens in spite of Maersk's great ambitions for its tanker carrier in the pool collaboration.

The two pace-setting US tanker carriers, Diamond S and OSG, have pulled out their vessels which have been operated by the Maersk-led Handytankers pool in 2015.

Maersk Tankers confirms this to ShippingWatch after rumors began circulating concerning the decision, although no one took credit for the information. The loss of the ships in Handytankers, one of the world's largest pool cooperations, is unfortunate for Maersk Tankers which has great ambitions for growing the pools headed by the Danish carrier.
