CEO's Column - NORDEN News Magazine Autumn 2005

Welcome to NORDEN's New World

In recent years, NORDEN has become an ever expanding and increasingly international shipping company with offices in 6 countries. The number of employees ashore has been more than quadrupled and the fleet has been increased several times over, presently consisting of 122 operated vessels with 38 more on the way. The task is now to secure a controlled and continued growth on some very volatile (fluctuating) markets. NORDEN News is intended to give all employees and interested parties an opportunity to obtain a more complete picture of NORDEN’s business, goals, values and challenges, and rapidly changing everyday business. NORDEN News will in future be issued 4 times a year: Spring, summer, autumn, and winter. I hope you will receive this newsletter well and make use of it.
