Maersk Tankers is expanding its services to shipowners with a new voyage management service. Building on the company’s expertise in commercial vessel operations and fuel optimisation, the service will help ship operators and owners achieve greater economic and environmental efficiency in day-to-day operations, according to the company’s release.
The first customer is LPG shipping and trading company Petredec Global. Maersk Tankers will take over the voyage management of, initially, seven Petredec Global-owned LPG carriers. The service includes day-to-day vessel operations, fuel optimisation and claims handling, covering full post-fixture support from the time the vessel is fixed for a voyage, through its successful execution, to the closure of the voyage books.
