Another 11 Ships to Fly the Danish Flag

Danish shipping registries will soon expand with another 11 vessels which are set to fly the Danish flag.

The units in questions are the ones belonging to the fleets of Danish shipping companies TORM and Dampskibsselskabet Norden A/S, according to the Danish Maritime Authority.

“This builds on the historic milestone when Danish shipping registries recently reached 20 million GT,” the authority informed.

Even though Denmark is not the world’s biggest ship registry, it is now in front when it comes to growth rate over the past year, which means that in just one month, the Danish International Shipping Register has grown from 20 to 20.5 million GT, with more than 700 ships registered in DIS.

“It is encouraging to see the Danish flag continuing its growth. Our political initiatives are having a positive effect, and we will continue the efforts to reduce administrative burdens, digitalize and improve the framework conditions and overall service for the industry,” Brian Mikkelsen, Minister of Business, Industry and Growth, said.
