New Torvald Klaveness chief executive Ernst Meyer believes there is a better way of doing business to boost fleet efficiency.

The former DNV executive has taken over the Norwegian owner and operator with a mission to make the global supply chain work better for all stakeholders.

“Maritime supply chains today are highly inefficient. We have long legs with big vessels burning tonnes of fuel to carry water,” he told TradeWinds.

One reason for this inefficiency is that the dynamic between brokers, charterers and owners is “very short-term”, Meyer argues.
