There’s no end in sight to the rash of mergers among shipbrokers. Wonsild Dry will merge with and become a fully integrated part of Maersk Broker Bulk Chartering as of next month.
The cooperation between Maersk Broker and Wonsild Dry started in 2016 when Maersk Broker became a major shareholder of Wonsild Dry.
The offices of Maersk Broker Bulk Chartering and Wonsild in Copenhagen and Singapore respectively will be combined. The Wonsild teams in Hong Kong and Bangkok will complement the existing network of Maersk Broker Bulk Chartering offices across the world – London, Hamburg, Dubai, Delhi, Beijing, Taipei, Seoul and Tokyo.
As from January 1, the combined activities will trade as Maersk Broker Bulk Chartering.
Wonsild’s tanker activities will not be affected by or be part of this transaction.
