Rickmers Establishes Korea Subsidiary

Tuesday, October 16, 2007
Rickmers-Linie, the Hamburg-based specialist for breakbulk, heavylift and project cargo, is expanding its network of own subsidiaries in Asia and will establish a new subsidiary, Rickmers (Korea) Inc, in Seoul effective November 1, 2007. “With its export oriented industry and as a significant location for shipping and related industries, Korea is one of our key markets in the Far East. Thus it was a logical decision to establish our own office in Seoul. The new subsidiary will primarily take over the role of Rickmers-Linie’s agent in Korea and moreover will be the representative office for Rickmers Group in Korea,” explained Gerhard Janssen, General Manager Marketing & Sales at Rickmers-Linie. Rickmers and Korea Maritime, the line’s agent since 2006, have amicably agreed to terminate their agency relationship and as from November 1, 2007, all business activities of Rickmers in Korea will be handled by the new subsidiary Rickmers (Korea) Inc. “The cooperation with Korea Maritime was excellent,” Mr. Janssen said. “We felt very well represented by them but they understand and support our decision to establish Rickmers (Korea) Inc.” Rickmers-Linie offers regular sailings fortnightly from Korea to the United States and destinations in Central America, as well as a monthly westbound service from the US to Korea. In addition, Rickmers Group has a string of vessels on order from Korean shipyards, amongst them the largest container ships in the world with a capacity of 13,100 TEU.
