Lauritzen Line


Founded in 1884 in Copenhagen Denmark, J. Lauritzen was initially a trading company dealing in building material, and later fertiliser and coal. In 1888 with the commissioning of the 450 ton Uganda, the company changed course for good and entered the merchant shipping industry. Over the years, J. Lauritzen has been involved in different types of shipping consistently focusing on niche sectors.

The company still operates in the global marketplace, and is engaged in ocean transport of perishable commodities (NYKLauritzenCool), petrochemical gases (Lauritzen Kosan), dry bulk cargo (Lauritzen Bulkers), crude oil, oil products and chemicals (Lauritzen Tankers).

The fleet consists of more than 200 vessels representing specialised reefer vessels, gas and dry bulk carriers as well as products tankers, which are owned or on time charter. In addition, J. Lauritzen is also engaged in land based activities (LauritzenCool Logistics) and provides integrated transport solutions to the refrigerated transport (reefer) market.
