After about four years in Copenhagen, Japanese weather forecaster Weathernews has successfully landed a major customer with Maersk Line and Maersk Tankers. For the next three years, Weathernews will handle weather forecasts, route planning, port information and other weather-related services which can counter risks to the vessels at the two carries, the company states in press release.

When Weathernews established an office in Copenhagen back in 2012, the plan was to aim for more business in the European shipping industry and not least the Danish shipping sector. Since then, the office has grown from two to 15 employees in 2015, which was also the year in which the company established a new service center to handle the route planning and other tasks. One thing in particular was important to Maersk Line and Maersk Tankers, namely reduced fuel consumption and less CO2 emissions.
