The Danish Shipowners' Association is a trade- and employer organisation for more than 40 shipowners and two offshore companies. Half of the Associations' members own ships registered in Denmark, the other half run their activities in Denmark but their ships are run under other flags of state.
All together, the members of the Danish Shipowners' Association own around DWT 14 million, which add up to more than 95 per cent of the Danish merchant fleet registered in the Danish International Shipregister (DIS).
The Danish Shipowners' Association was established in 1884. Since then it has been working as a collective point for the Danish shipping industry, and today it plays an important and active role in relation to the authorities and decision-makers nationally and internationally. The Association also has a permanent representation office in Bruxelles.
Aditionally, the Danish Shipowners' Association is a member of and works with foreign shipowners' associations in Europe and beyond.
Apart from its members the Danish Shipowners' Association serves the two other shipowners' associations in Denmark: the Shipowners' Association of 2010 and the Danish Car Ferry Association.
