Maersk Broker is once again demonstrating the company's ambitions for its dry bulk activities. The Maersk-family's privately owned brokerage firm has signed a declaration of intent with Danish broker Lanic to become the new majority shareholder in the company. Lanic CEO Michael Kæfting keeps the remaining shares in the company, inform the two brokers in a statement.
