Denmark’s Maersk Tankers, owned by A.P. Moller Holding, has welcomed Transworld Group, a global shipping and logistics solution conglomerate headquartered in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, as a pool partner.

More specifically, Transworld Group, which is in shipping and logistics solutions business for over four decades, has joined Maersk Tankers Intermediate pool with their newly acquired ship TTC Vishaka.

The activities of Transworld Group include a broad range of logistics activities, including shipowning and management, within container, multi-purpose vessels, bulk carriers and tankers.

It’s worth noting that Maersk Tankers’ Intermediate pool is trading its ships globally, transporting a vast range of products, which is a unique offering in a segment dominated by regional trade.

Maersk Tankers’ pool has built its global position on an ability to move the fleet to those markets with the highest demand for tanker trade. Therefore, it is less exposed to fluctuations in individual markets.

Last week, Maersk Tankers hosted an operational pool meeting in the coastal city of South Goa, India. The event brought together representatives from pool partners all over the world with experts from Maersk Tankers and Njord, and created an opportunity for information sharing and interactive sessions.

The meeting’s agenda covered a wide spectrum of topics including fuel optimisation and energy efficiency measures.

“How we are managing the complex sanctions landscape from an operational perspective, as well as the practical implications of decarbonisation regulations CII and EU ETS,” commented Maersk after the meeting.

Maersk Tankers is an asset-light service company, meaning the company does not own vessels, but manages vessels on behalf of shipowners.

With its headquarters based in Copenhagen, Maersk Tankers provides commercial management solutions for shipowners in the tanker industry, operating one of the largest tanker fleets in the world.
