Maersk Tankers’ response to coronavirus

In view of the global spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), Maersk Tankers is taking the necessary precautionary measures to ensure the health and wellbeing of its employees, and to continue to support customers and partners in supplying energy products to people worldwide.


‘We are responding to the coronavirus with our employees’ health and wellbeing taking priority,’ says Christian M. Ingerslev, CEO of Maersk Tankers. ‘We have implemented precautionary measures and will continue to take an active role in limiting the spread of the coronavirus. At the same time, we are maintaining services to our customers and partners, which is critical to ensure energy products are brought to people worldwide.’

Maersk Tankers has taken measures to limit the spread of the coronavirus. These include the implementation of travel restrictions globally and precautionary measures in employees’ workplaces. Furthermore, location-specific measures have been taken; for example, employees in the Copenhagen, Houston, Romania and Mumbai offices are working from home until further notice.

At present, Maersk Tankers’ operations at sea remain largely unaffected, which means the company continues to provide services safely to customers and partners. As the coronavirus is having a growing impact on the global economy, the company is closely monitoring the tanker market to assess developments and potential impact.

The company is following guidance and recommendations from governments and authorities and will continue to implement appropriate measures globally and in specific locations.
