Operations[edit]

The company was formerly composed of tanker and bulk carrier divisions with product tanker activity accounting for the majority of the business. The last two bulk carriers were divested in 2015.

TORM is one of the leading tanker carriers of clean oil products such as gasoline, jet fuel, naphtha and diesel oil and other clean products.

The company operates approximately 130 vessels as of 2010.[3]

On 8 June 2007, A/S Dampskibsselskabet TORM (TORM) announced that TORM and TeekayCorporation (TEEKAY) had completed the acquisition of OMI Corporation (OMI), whereby OMI became a jointly owned subsidiary of TORM and TEEKAY.

TORM will also take over OMI’s technical operations in India and a part of OMI’s organisation in the US.
