Danish Shipping is a trade- and employer organisation for more than 40 shipowners and two offshore companies. Half of the Organisations members own ships registered in Denmark, the other half run their activities in Denmark but their ships are run under other flags of state.
All together, the members of Danish Shipping own around DWT 33 million, which add up to more than 95 per cent of the Danish merchant fleet registered in the Danish International Shipregister (DIS).
Danish Shipping was established in 1884. Since then it has been working as a collective point for the Danish shipping industry, and today it plays an important and active role in relation to the authorities and decision-makers nationally and internationally. The Organisation also has a permanent representation office in Bruxelles.
Aditionally, Danish Shipping is a member of and works with foreign shipowners' organisations in Europe and beyond.
Apart from its members Danish Shipping serves the two other shipowners' organisations in Denmark: Shipowners Association of 2010 and the Danish Ferry Association.
