ISS Expands in Southern China

Wednesday, January 14, 2009
Since the beginning of the year Inchcape Shipping Services has been attending vessels and providing professional boarding and agency services in the ports of Nansha and Huangpu in southern China. Located on the Pearl River Delta, Huangpu and Nansha (the Greater Guangzhou Ports) are busy Chinese ports, handling the full spectrum of commodities and home to shipyards providing newbuild, repair and drydock services. Southern Chinaís economic achievements are the result of a pioneering and proactive approach which has seen the region aligning itself with the central government's open-policy reforms. And the Pearl River Delta is southern Chinaís most powerful economic engine. ISS China's General Manager, David Young said ìOur new offices in Huangpu and Nansha ports effective 1 January, coupled with our long-established experience of servicing vessels calling at Hong Kong, shows our commitment to understanding and responding to our customersí needs. This wider coverage we now have in the region means we can offer customers a much more comprehensive service. And ISS systems, procedures and processes are all being implemented to ensure a high level of service deliverables. ISS Asia Pacific Regional Managing Director, Jan N. Lauridsen commented "This is an important move for ISS. By providing our own boarding, agency and marine related services in ports other than Shanghai, we seek to position ourselves as a strategic partner with our esteemed clients. And ISS will continue to expand its geographical footprint in the region in line with our long term strategy."
