Between April 2017 and April 2018, the Danish flagged merchant fleet has grown by 25 pct. in size. This corresponds to a growth in gross tonnage by 3.8 million GT in just one year – the largest leap ever for the Danish fleet. By April 2018, 703 ships fly the Danish flag.
More than half of these are offshore vessels and specialized vessels – but measured in gross tonnage, the container segment by far accounts for the largest part of the fleet.
In just one year, Denmark has advanced from number eight to number six on the global list of operator
nations. Denmark is now ahead of both Germany and South Korea – and only 1.5 million GT away from the global top five.
With this in mind, it only seems natural that Denmark position itself with a recurring event that facilities networking and business between the Danish maritime cluster and the global maritime business.
