About Us


Transmarine Tankers ApS was founded and commenced business in December 1982, primarily as a Ship Management Company for external clients.

The Company also offers Management Services in financial and shipping related activities and is based in Copenhagen, Denmark.

The Company acts solely as Ship Managers/Agents to clients (Owners or Charterer’s of ships) and operates a policy whereby it is financially independent from its clients. It is not involved in part-ownership or other financial investments in clients and/or their vessels and by the same token Clients have no vested interests in Transmarine Tankers ApS.

The management of the vessels is carried out on a strict contractual basis for an agreed fee. A standard BIMCO approved contract form is normally used.

The economic responsibility of the vessel is borne solely by the owner/timecharterer. Eventual sea-going personnel are employed directly by the clients (owners) and also paid by them, as are stores, bunkers, port costs, provisions, spares and repairs etc.

Funds are provided by the respective clients who in turn give Transmarine Tankers ApS power-of-attorney to handle the payments of day to day operational and running costs.

Being a small organisation means flexibility, short communication lines and the ability to act fast and swiftly.

  • Supply of provisions, stores and spare parts
  • Registration, Classification and Flag state certification
