The origin of Christiania Shipping, emerges from Herning Shipping A/S and goes back to 1963, where Vitta and Peder Lysgaard purchased their first vessel in order to supply a reliable supply for the family-owned oil company Uno-X. To honor the family business, the vessel was named after the wife and named m/t Vitta Theresa. This tradition has continued with all consecutive vessels been given Theresa as a second name.
Since 1963, the fleet has grown considerably and today consists of 18 sophisticated oil and chemical tankers. Our core trade lane is Europe and West Africa, where we have gathered great experience through many years of trading.
