Perhaps the sea is in our genes. Our company originated in 1975 in Denmark, a country surrounded by the sea and the launching point for many of the early Viking ships. Although the Vikings' strength and ferocity has been well publicized, they were also Europe's first, modern trans-continental merchants, using vessels appropriate for the tasks at hand, whether military or mercantile. At a time when there were few maps, the Vikings first-hand experience gave them invaluable knowledge of the territory.
Scan-Trans Shipping has followed a similar philosophy, practicing our trade by gaining first-hand knowledge of our ships, cargoes, and the routes in and out of our ports of call. We adhere to the insight provided by the father of the modern American submarine force, Admiral Hyman Rickover, who observed: "The devil is in the details." That's why we master them.
