The Clipper Group of Copenhagen today operates a huge fleet of over two hundred owned and chartered vessels with around one hundred fully or partly owned in the dry cargo bulk and project cargo trades. The Group also has a significant presence in a range of other maritime activities such as tankers, loggers, ferry services, cruise ships and ro-ro shipping, the latter being the important Irish Sea freight operator of Seatruck Ferries. All of this has been achieved in a relatively short span of time, from a dozen chartered vessels in the range of 9,000 dwt to 12,000 dwt forty years ago to a vast fleet operating worldwide today, and managed and operated from offices in Copenhagen, Nassau, Stamford (Connecticut), Houston (Texas), Barranquilla (Colombia), Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo, Mumbai, Dubai, Beijing, Shanghai, Dalian, Tokyo, Singapore and Melbourne.
