From all of us at Thorco Shipping, we want to thank you for the first half of 2016. We value and appreciate
your confidence entrusting your business with us.
The first half of 2016 has been characterized by a still turbulent and unstable market. However, in Thorco
we strongly believe that even though the market is under pressure, when it is a closed door, this also equals
an open door in terms of other opportunities that will arise. We strive to think out of the box, to think more
creatively, and in this way, continue to sustain and build on our strong foundation. We thus have some
interesting projects in the pipeline for the rest of the year.
First of all, we will be launching our new and improved website later this summer. Furthermore, as of
August 1, we get a new sister company, the dry bulk carrier Thorco Bulk. Thorco Bulk will be an asset light
operator within the handy/supra segment. A collaboration we really look forward to and where we believe
there are evident synergy effects to be gained.
Additionally, one of our key focuses for the year is to keep developing our customer platform to continue
the high level of service and performance that is Thorco’s standards. We endeavour to get even closer to you,
our customers, and to strengthen our relations and learn more about your needs
and wishes. Building relationships is more important than ever and by
adjusting our commercial set-up in a way where key account managers
will play a larger role, we are able to do so to a greater extent.
Earlier this year, we furthermore published our annual report
and we are proud to have delivered an operating profit and
a positive net result.
Thorco is a part of the family-owned and global conglomerate THORNICO, where the tendency has
been stable and the large portfolio of companies have
performed very well for several years. An ownership
which brings about stability and also creates a high
degree of flexibility and readiness, making Thorco a
dynamic and flexible company. Qualities which are more
important than ever in times like these.
Although, we have experienced some of the worst
times in our industry, the last couple of months have
shown a positive tendency compared with the first
quarter. In Thorco, we look towards the future with
great aspirations and wish you all a great summer.
