Our purpose is to pioneer shipping solutions for our partners and the planet. This puts decarbonisation and partners at the core of our strategy. We want to develop solutions that move the industry forward.
Size matters. Improving the voyage of just one vessel matters, but improving the voyages of a fleet makes a real difference. We want to grow so that our solutions and way of conducting business have a significant impact. For our partners and the planet.
Vessel owners face increasing demands to cut emissions and deliver attractive returns. By bringing together vessel owners in a large-scale set-up, we help them meet these demands and manage the complexity of the industry. We have already demonstrated our ability to bring partners together by tripling the number of external partners over the past three years. That is a solid starting point for further growth.
We are connecting vessel owners and cargo customers. But to us, the idea of service is not just a matter of facilitating the movement of ships and cargo. It is about understanding and meeting the needs of our partners.
Joining us is not only a financial matter. It is also a matter of getting access to the expertise and data that offer viable solutions.
When joining Maersk Tankers, partners are forming a relationship. It is up to us to deliver the best service and solutions for our partners. We aim to be the preferred partner for vessel owners by providing the solutions they need combined with a personal service.
We have not only changed from being a traditional tanker owner to a service company focused on commercial management of vessels. We are also becoming pioneers in shipping solutions. Finding and deploying solutions requires a pioneering culture, which encourages innovative thinking and an experimental approach. We are making a cultural shift, and at the core of this is a change in focus - from assets to people and impact.
We are downsizing and upscaling at the same time. We are becoming a smaller organisation with a clear focus on commercial management – but increasing the number of partners. This calls for a simpler way of doing business, where we tap into the advantages of being smaller and more agile. This will benefit partners and employees and it will create the foundation for growth.
