Even though Denmark is not the world’s biggest ship registry, we are now in front when it comes to growth rate over the past year. In just one month, the Danish International Shipping Register has grown from 20 mio. BT to 20.​5, and there are now more than 700 ships registered in DIS.

Minister of Business, Industry and Growth, Brian Mikkelsen:
“It is encouraging to see the Danish flag continuing its growth. Our political initiatives are having a positive effect, and we will continue the efforts to reduce administrative burdens, digitalize and improve the framework conditions and overall service for the industry.”

When companies choose the Danish flag as a hub for their activities, it helps to grow the economy, while also providing Denmark with more influence on international maritime policy and regulation, which allows Denmark to continue promotion of safe and green quality shipping.
