Inchcape Shipping Services (ISS), the world’s leading maritime and logistics service provider, will expanded its European business with Team Tankers International.
Under the new agreement with the chemical tanker specialist, ISS will provide port agency and vessel clearance services in all major European ports and terminals. Team Tankers International is one of the largest chemical tanker operators in the world, with a fleet of more than 40 chemical tankers.
While ISS has been providing port agency for Team Tankers International since 2013, this new agreement will capitalize on ISS’ wide-range of European offices within its global network. Made up of more than 300 proprietary offices in 70 countries, ISS’ diverse global customer base includes owners and charterers in the oil, cruise, container and bulk commodity sectors as well as naval, government and inter-governmental organizations.
“We are very pleased with this extended agreement with ISS, and we expect great benefits and a more streamlined service on the agency side,” says Jørgen-Ole Christensen, senior operations manager at Team Tankers International.
Adds ISS Chief Commercial Officer Neill Tomlin: “The new agreement will deliver simple, constant value to Team Tankers International across our European network. We’re looking forward to supporting Team Tankers as they expand.”
