To remain well represented in its market segment and to ensure its leading position, herning shipping is constantly renewing and introducing new ships to its fleet. Therefore, as part of its growth strategy – to focus on growing the fleet from within – herning shipping has initiated an extensive building programme. Turkey, Singapore, and China are among the countries where new ships are being built. Currently and through to 2010, herning shipping is concentrating on its largest ever new-building programme.
As herning shipping starts using its new buildings and phasing out old vessels, the average age of the fleet is improving – it has already been reduced to less than 4 years, which compared to 12.8 years – typical of a global fleet – puts herning shipping among the very best.
