Swedish Transatlantic is working to split the two divisions Industrial Shipping and Viking Supply Ships, the latter of which is based in Copenhagen, Transatlantic CFO Tomas Bergendahl tells ShippingWatch.

"The overlap between the two segments is not very big. They differ in many ways, so there's a strategy from the ownership that it makes sense to split the company in two. A split will allow greater focus on each separate segment," he says.
