With a significant amount of the energy trade for the Asia Pacific region flowing through Singapore, the city is an important energy hub for the world. Maersk Tankers established its first own office in Singapore in the early 1990s and, today, manages a large share of its activities from there with around 40% of the 150 ships under the company’s management trading in the Asia Pacific region.
“Our Singapore activities play an important role in enabling trade and ensuring that the vessels in our fleet trade as efficiently as possible and generate the greatest returns for our partners,” says Kristian Jasper, Managing Director and Head of Chartering of Maersk Tankers Singapore.
“The new office will support us in that by moving us closer to customers, pool partners and brokers and it will offer employees a new and modern work environment in a central location.”
