A few days before J. Lauritzen publishes its 3rd quarter interim report, the carrier tells ShippingWatch that it is terminating the lease on the company's historical headquarters in the center of Copenhagen, the address on the seafront square Skt. Annæ Plads, and will instead move to the shipping cluster in the area around Tuborg Havnevej in Hellerup, on the northern edge of Copenhagen.
"I can confirm that we're moving and that we've terminated the lease. The building is owned by the Lauritzen Foundation. But I decline to comment on why we've chosen to do so," says senior vice president Jens Søndergaard in a comment to ShippingWatch.
