Inchcape Shipping Services (ISS), the world’s leading maritime and logistics service provider, has expanded its agreement with Chembulk Tankers into South America and Asia.
The new agreement will see ISS handle some 150 additional port calls for Chembulk Tankers per year, in addition to its existing services on the east and west coasts of America. Chembulk is one of the largest deep-sea chemical shipping companies in the world.
ISS’ work with Chembulk now encompasses Brazil in South America and Singapore, Hong Kong and Thailand in Asia. Further services will include managing dry dockings in the Bahamas and handling selected port calls in the UAE.
The additional agreement was awarded to ISS after it provided a consistently fast and reliable service on existing Chembulk business in the US, along with its proven track record in the chemical tanker sector.
Chembulk’s Michael McCormick, Vice President, General Manager Commercial Operations commented: “We are pleased to be working with Inchcape in these additional ports and feel that ISS can provide superior service and meet our specific service requirements.”
Simon Edsall, ISS Executive Vice President for the Asia Pacific, expressed ISS’ delight in further developing their relationship with Chembulk: “Having proven the quality and responsiveness of our service in the US over the past eight years, we are looking forward to demonstrating the unique value of our global network for consistent, high-quality service delivery.”
