Rederi Transatlantic AB Announces Organizational Restructuring of Viking Supply Ships; to Cut Jobs

Monday, 21 Jan 2013 07:30am EST 

Rederi Transatlantic AB announced that the management of Viking Supply Ships A/S (VSS) has proposed a new organizational structure for VSS. VSS has its head office in Copenhagen and additional site offices in Kristiansand (Norway), Gothenburg (Sweden) and Moscow (Russia). The proposal is to centralize all support functions as well as operational management at the head office in Copenhagen with effect from July 1, 2013.The purpose is to achieve a lean and efficient VSS organization tailored for operations in the North Sea and Arctic regions. The Kristiansand office will proceed as a commercial office and the Gothenburg office will be closed. Consequently, approximately 20 positions are expected to be made redundant in the Gothenburg and Kristiansand offices. New positions will be made available in the Copenhagen office and staff from the Gothenburg and Kristiansand offices will be encouraged to apply for these positions. Altogether, it means a net headcount reduction of between 10 and 12 positions in the VSS organization. In the next few weeks, VSS will consult employee representatives and unions in order to finalize the specific structure of the new organization. The suggested changes in the organization will not only reduce overhead costs, but also improve productivity.
