A message from Thor Jørgen Guttormsen, CEO

24 March 2020

As the situation around coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to evolve at an unprecedented magnitude, it has caused much disruption and uncertainty around the world.

I want to take this opportunity to personally assure you that we are committed today as before to enable your business. Our priority continues to be the safety of our employees, crew and business partners, and continuity of our operations with as little disruption as possible.

At this time, all the ports that we call are operational, however many are putting in place extra restrictions. Our team is closely monitoring the rapidly evolving situation and are working around the globe to find solutions to keep our operations running as smoothly as possible.

Our colleagues globally have worked diligently to ensure we continue to run a safe and effective business on both sea and land. With travel restrictions in place, we appreciate that our seafarers have extended their time at sea to ensure the transportation of your cargo. Our office teams around the world are working remotely to accommodate customer requests as best as possible, and ensure business continuity. Their dedication enables us to continue to operate in these challenging times.

I want to take this moment to thank you for your continued trust and support. We will continue to operate and work hard to find the best possible solutions in this challenging situation.
