Denmark use a lot of loanwords from Dutch and Low German in regards to ships

Denmark use a lot of loanwords from Dutch and Low German in regards to ships. Which is kind of funny when thinking of Danish history, the Vikings, the navy, Mærsk the biggest shipping company ever, etc..

Here is a few examples:

“Agter er i skibsterminologi betegnelsen for bagude (agterud), bageste del af skibet, og hækken er den del af skibet som rager agter ud over vandlinjen.

Achter (præposition) er det hollandske og plattyske ord for: bag ved, bag.”

“Betegnelsen kabys er formodentlig opstået fra den plattyske benævnelse, kabuse = bræddeskur og/ eller det hollandske kombuis.”

“Luv (fra nederlandsk te loeve waart, ‘på vindsiden’) og læ er to maritime udtryk.”

“Ordet pøs stammer fra det hollandske ‘puts’, og betegnede oprindeligt en spand med et tov monteret på hanken. Midt på pøsens hank fandtes et øje, hvori tovværket var fastsplejset. På den måde var det muligt at kaste den overbord og dernæst hale en fyldt pøs med havvand indenbords. I træskibenes dage anvendtes havvand til stort set alt, hvad der skulle bruges vand til, idet der ombord kun fandtes en begrænset mængde af ferskvand.”

Basic Services And Supply Chains Are Rapidly Breaking Down All Over The Globe

In the waning days of 2021, optimists assured us that the computer chip shortage would soon go away, but the numbers are telling us that it has gotten even worse. In fact, the wait time for chip delivery is now the longest that it has ever been. Delivery times for chips jumped in December, signaling the semiconductor shortage is worsening into the new year, according to research by Susquehanna Financial Group. On average, lead times increased six days to approximately 25.8 weeks last month compared with November. This is the longest wait time since the firm began monitoring the data in 2017.

Mærsk: Freight chaos will extend into 2022

Although Maersk is the world’s most punctual container shipping company, more than half of the company’s ships are currently late, according to a statement from Seaintelligence.

The chaos that has caused delays to global supply chains in recent months will extend into next year. Shortages of truck drivers prevent hundreds of container ships from unloading goods around the world.

Maersk’s chief executive Søren Skou assessed this at a press conference yesterday in connection with the company’s quarterly financial statements, according to the media gCaptain.

  • The whole system has become a gigantic bottleneck, he said.

Søren Skou explained that the main problem preventing containers from leaving ports is a labour shortage, especially drivers of heavy goods vehicles in the US and UK, despite the fact that wages have been raised significantly.

There are 300 container ships lying useless outside ports right now, Skou said.

Although Maersk is the world’s most punctual container shipping company, the situation right now is such that more than half of the company’s ships are late, according to a statement from the research firm Seaintelligence.

Rotterdam is the largest port in Europe, with the rivers Maas and Rhine providing excellent access to the hinterland upstream reaching to Basel, Switzerland and into France. In 2004 Shanghai took over as the world’s busiest port. In 2006, Rotterdam was the world’s seventh largest container port in terms of twenty-foot equivalent units (TEU) handled.

The port’s main activities are petrochemical industries and general cargo handling and transshipment. The harbour functions as an important transit point for bulk materials between the European continent and overseas. From Rotterdam, goods are transported by ship, river barge, train or road. In 2007, the Betuweroute, a new fast freight railway from Rotterdam to Germany, was completed.

Port of Rotterdam

Rotterdam (/ˈrɒtərdæm/, UK also /ˌrɒtərˈdæm/Dutch: [ˌrɔtərˈdɑm] (listen)) is the second largest city and municipality in the Netherlands. It is in the province of South Holland, at the mouth of the Nieuwe Maas channel leading into the Rhine–Meuse–Scheldt delta at the North Sea. Its history goes back to 1270, when a dam was constructed in the Rotte. In 1340, Rotterdam was granted city rights by the Count of Holland. The Rotterdam–The Hague metropolitan area, with a population of approximately 2.7 million, is the 10th-largest in the European Union and the most populous in the country.

A major logistic and economic centre, Rotterdam is Europe‘s largest seaport. In 2020, it had a population of 651,446 and is home to over 180 nationalities. Rotterdam is known for its university, riverside setting, lively cultural life, maritime heritage and modern architecture. The near-complete destruction of the city centre in the World War II Rotterdam Blitz has resulted in a varied architectural landscape, including skyscrapers designed by architects such as Rem KoolhaasPiet Blom and Ben van Berkel.

The RhineMeuse and Scheldt give waterway access into the heart of Western Europe, including the highly industrialized Ruhr. The extensive distribution system including rail, roads, and waterways have earned Rotterdam the nicknames “Gateway to Europe” and “Gateway to the World”.

As of 2017, Denmark’s largest export partners are Germany, Sweden, the United Kingdom and the United States.

Denmark’s currency, the krone (DKK), is pegged at approximately 7.46 kroner per euro through the ERM II. Although a September 2000 referendum rejected adopting the euro, the country follows the policies set forth in the Economic and Monetary Union of the European Union and meets the economic convergence criteria needed to adopt the euro. The majority of the political parties in the Folketing support joining the Economic and Monetary Union of the European Union|EMU, but since 2010 opinion polls have consistently shown a clear majority against adopting the euro. In May 2018, 29% of respondents from Denmark in a Eurobarometer opinion poll stated that they were in favour of the EMU and the euro, whereas 65% were against it. 

Ranked by turnover in Denmark, the largest Danish companies are: A.P. Møller-Mærsk (international shipping), Novo Nordisk (pharmaceuticals), ISS A/S (facility services), Vestas (wind turbines), Arla Foods (dairy), DSV (transport), Carlsberg Group (beer), Salling Group (retail), Ørsted A/S (power), Danske Bank.
