This month, J. Lauritzen held its regular event in the beautiful Happo En Gardens in Tokyo, Japan for customers and maritime colleagues in the region.

In his speech to attendees, CEO Mads P. Zacho spoke of friendship, partnership and the importance for Denmark to continue to build strong business and diplomatic relationships Japan. Mr Zacho also looked ahead to the timing of J. Lauritzen’s next event in Japan in 2020, which will be held onboard the Danish sailing ship Danmark – a large and beautiful training ship for Danish seafarers.

Danmark is currently in dry dock for a major refurbishment sponsored by the Lauritzen Foundation, the sole shareholder of J. Lauritzen. Once completed the training ship Danmark will set sail and travel – remaining CO2 neutral towards Tokyo Port. It will remain for the duration of the 2020 Tokyo Olympic games. We look forward to next year – our short video below shows highlights from 2019.
