J. Lauritzen A/S


J. Lauritzen has served the maritime trade worldwide for more than 130 years and has been engaged in a range of different segments of the shipping industry. Today, we are a global provider of marine transportation of dry bulk cargoes, petrochemicals and liquefied petroleum gases.

Lauritzen Bulkers controls a modern fleet of more than 100 primarily handysize and supramax dry bulk carriers.

Lauritzen Kosan controls a fleet of about 40 semi-refrigerated, fully-pressurized and ethylene gas carriers - a segment of the shipping industry characterised by technically complex requirements from regulators and clients.

From our headquarters in Copenhagen, Denmark and our overseas offices in Singapore, China, the Philippines, the United States, Switzerland and Spain, we employ around 1,100 highly-skilled and experienced people at sea and ashore.

J. Lauritzen is wholly owned by the Lauritzen Foundation - a commercial foundation with the objective to support shipping, culture, social humanitarian work and education.
