Did my first solo class survey on Merc Scandinavia. Lovely clean ships, carrying general cargo out from Felixstowe or Ipswich, often returning to UK with fruit.

Are these guys still operating or did Maersk buy them out too ? I worked alot with them - on the chartering side - end 80's/early 90's out of Venezuela.

Danish tax changes and other factors saw their withdrawal from shipping but as a company they are still active in the finance and real estate markets among others.

A book by Bente Mikklesen as Volume 5 in his Danish Shipping Companies series was recently published detailing their history in shipping. In dual language Danish/English and well illustrated.
