Week 25

Editorial

Bo H. Drewsen

Thursday again - I am starting to wonder if there are 2 Thursdays in a week and I recall the saying that quote "I will do it when there are 2 Mondays in a week". Well, let me say that it there has to be 2 days in a week then let it be Thursdays. I just spent 9 days in Denmark, a country that is deeply involved in all matters green. Something that we as a country try to promote abroad. Danish companies sell it as part of their profile and generally green has been the "in" color for some years. I recently shipped 1 x 20' container with personal effects using "Evergreen" all to support the green movement :-)

In this weeks issue:

  • An interview with the Port of Grenaa, Denmark
  • Sector news and some impressive project shipments being loaded & won by reputable shipowners
  • Video, photo, and quote of the week
  • Job seekers: An introduction to an expert in Corporate Social Responsibility

Next week will be our last issue before the summer break.

Yours sincerely,
