New Office

On 16th April Atlantic Shipping moved the office address from Rysensteensgade 14 to the new office address Islands Brygge 26. The company was at Rysensteensgade 14 for more than 20 years and needed more space and better facilities in order to provide our clients with good and professional support. The new office has better facilities for holding meetings and has great views of the waterfront in Copenhagen.
