About ShippingWatch

ShippingWatch is an independent online media with a mission to deliver credible, independent, critical, fair and topical business news about companies and people in the maritime industry.

We update ShippingWatch regularly and issue two Danish newsletters and one newsletter in English on a daily basis. The articles are produced by a permanent staff of journalists, managed by Editor Tomas Kristiansen. Furthermore, freelancers and external partners such as Jyllands-Posten – one of the major Danish dailies – and Ritzau Finans – the leading Danish financial news agency – contribute to the news flow.

Our ambitions are to provide our readers with high-quality journalism, which is why some articles are only available to our subscribers.
