NORDEN celebrates: 151 years of sailing the seven seas
In 2021, NORDEN celebrates its 150th anniversary, being one of the world’s oldest international shipping companies.
Over its 150-year history, NORDEN has been through several transformations in response to the changing world of global trade. From a small Danish steamship owner, it has become a leading global player in the dry cargo and product tanker markets, with offices in 11 countries across six continents.

For shipping, the introduction of the IMO 2020 regulation is one of the largest changes in modern history. As a consequence, NORDEN announces a significant investment in scrubbers, essentially enabling NORDEN to comply with the regulation by installing scrubbers on some vessels and switching to new fuel on others.
2018 is also the year where NORDEN acquires 100% ownership of Norient Product Pool and welcomes 60 “new” colleagues.
NORDEN opens an office in Abidjan, Ivory Coast, and is now present on all relevant continents.
