Inchcape Shipping Services (ISS) has been appointed as the new agent for the port of Houston by specialist transportation & logistic services company, Grieg Star Shipping.
Houston is a major market for Grieg Star with two main trade lanes, North Europe to US East Coast and Gulf and Far East to US East Coast and Gulf, each requiring port calls for import and export activities. ISS already works with Grieg Star Shipping in the US at a number of ports including New Orleans, Baltimore, Beaumont, Corpus Christi and Philadelphia.
ISS Houston will manage the new Grieg Star Shipping contact with the implementation of the traffic and documentation functions spearheaded by ISS Mobile in Alabama. Says Elaine Penton, ISS Vice President for US Gulf: “This new opportunity is a great example of ISS drawing from best practices by implementing a plan to provide the most efficiency and reliable service to our customers through our experienced and dedicated team.”
