J. Lauritzen in Brief
“Together, we create a world-class shipping company” is the vision for J. Lauritzen A/S (JL), one of Denmark’s leading ship-owning companies.
Founded in 1884, tradition and ambition continue to create value for all JL’s business partners, whether in working together on ship operations and management, transporting of cargoes or financing our growth strategies.
From company head office in Copenhagen and our overseas offices in the United Kingdom, Spain, Singapore, China, Japan and USA, our vision links all JL employees together, ensuring that our values of Competence, Respect, Entrepreneurship, Accountability, Team Spirit and Enthusiasm form a vital part in our daily aspirations as a world-class business.
JL owns and operates a combined fleet of some 140 bulk carriers, gas carriers, and product tankers, with 78 newbuildings scheduled to enter the fleet in the next few years to support our growth strategies and to make sure that JL continues to provide “Oceans of know-how” to customers and partners.
The massive investment in new tonnage will further confirm JL’s respect for the environment as well as our ambition for providing safe ocean transport.
