Wilhelmsen Ships Service (WSS) has opened a new office in Western Australia to meet increased business opportunities as the port of Geraldton continues to grow. Michael Connolly, General Manager for Western Australia said, “As a business, we have been widening our net throughout Western Australia over the past year and have seen a number of notable successes across the north western ports.”


 “By concentrating on the growing port of Geraldton, we are putting ourselves in a strong position to provide ship owners with easy access to our globally-renowned agency services. In addition, we are opening up local and international trade links, supported by our industry-leading governance, quality accreditation and high standards of customer service.”


The new office has been operational from day one, with a number of experienced local staff on hand to utilise existing relationships with the port. Connolly continues:  “Since the opening we have received much positive response from customers and have quickly built business with local shippers, transport companies and stevedores. Our focus is on providing the high levels of agency services for which we are known, continuing to offer competitive agency rates and expanding ships agency options for vessels coming into the port.”
