Wilhelmsen Ships Service (WSS) has consolidated its legal status in Russia which will enable the global ships services provider to supply all clients in the country, including internal ports and waterways. Wilhelmsen Ships Service has had offices in all main ports in Russia for the last 15 years, but until now has only been able to service foreign vessels calling at Russian ports. By establishing a legal entity within the Russian Federation, WSS is now able to supply marine products inside the country from warehouses in Vladivostok and St Petersburg. WSS has opened a new warehouse close to the trade port at St. Petersburg which is easily accessible for road transport. This enables WSS to service the main ports in the European part of the country, including Northern Russia (Murmansk and Arkhangelsk) and Southern Russia (Azov, Black and Caspian Sea). During the initial phase, WSS will concentrate on supplying Unitor marine chemicals, later expanding to include all products in the WSS range, depending on local market requirements. Wilhelmsen Ships Service supplies regulatory products and services as well as Unitor marine products, Nalfleet marine chemicals, global maritime logistics and ships agency services.
