Maersk Supply Service is divesting up to 20 vessels and reducing its crew pool by 400 offshore positions over the coming 18 months.

The divestment plan is a response to vessels in lay-up, limited trading opportunities and the global over-supply of offshore supply vessels in the industry, the company informed on Thursday.
