VHT thanks all shipping companies, underwriters and brokers for their collaboration and the great cooperation in the last 15 years. Furthermore, we would like to thank all our almost 300 average agents around the world for their qualified and committed assistance in any cases at any time
We are looking expectantly to the prospective cooperation with all of you. Furthermore, it is a great pleasure for us to review the last 15 years and about 220 years of tradition which would not have been possible without your confidence in us.
