DS NORDEN A/S MIGRATES TO THE VESLINK IMOS PLATFORM

In February 2018, NORDEN expanded its relationship with Veson Nautical, migrating to Veson’s cloud solution, the Veslink IMOS Platform, in an effort to digitally transform their business. NORDEN views the Veslink IMOS Platform as a crucial component of their aggressive near-term growth initiative and long-term competitive strategy.
