Increased traffic at Skagen leads to expansion

Two companies in Skagen are growing their fleets to meet the rising demand from an increasing number of ships at Skagen.


Excellent fishing conditions, streamlined maritime services, efficient freight handling, and prime stopover options for bunkering and cruises are positioning the Port of Skagen as a premier business hub in Scandinavia.

More and more ships are choosing to anchor at Skagen, taking advantage of the maritime services provided by local companies.

Companies like Saga Shipping, which has been servicing ships both at anchor and dockside since 1972, and the four-year-old L&N Supply Ships are reaping the benefits of this trend. Both companies offer services such as crew changes, provisioning, bunker services, and repairs.

CEO of Saga Shipping, Peter Møller, says, “We are very pleased with the increased activity at the roads—it is extremely positive for our entire area and great that, as a service company, we can keep up with the demand,”.

L&N Supply Ships relocated from Frederikshavn to Skagen two years ago and currently operates two vessels, with a third on the way.

Rasmus Høj Larsen, CEO and partner at L&N Supply Ships, notes, “The market has simply grown. At the moment, we are seeing a 30 percent increase compared to 2023. After the summer holidays, we will expand with a new subsidiary, which we look forward to sharing more about,”.
