Inchcape Shipping Services Celebrates 300+ Offices
Wednesday, December 04, 2013

Maritime services provider Inchcape Shipping Services (ISS) is celebrating the further expansion of its global footprint, following the opening of a new office in Map Ta Phut, Thailand.

This new opening takes the ISS worldwide network to over 300 offices, a significant achievement in the company’s 160 year history. It follows other recent openings on the Adriatic and the West Coast of Africa, and demonstrates ISS’ commitment and alignment to its customers, by strategically expanding where and when required.

The new office, ISS Thailand’s second, is based in the country’s largest industrial port in the Gulf of Thailand, 150 miles from Bangkok which is part of the region’s Eastern Seaboard Development plan, an ongoing economic and infrastructure programme which is now the centre for the country’s export industries. This latest opening will enable ISS to strengthen its network in the region and provide a more localised service in Thailand.

Map Ta Phut port has the facilities to handle liquid, bulk, container, heavy lift and multipurpose cargoes and ISS Thailand has already signed contracts with a number of clients to service port calls out of its new office.

Comments Romi Kaushal, ISS Executive Vice President of Operations, Asia Pacific: “We are pleased to announce that our Map Ta Phut office is not only open but marks an important milestone taking us to over 300 offices worldwide across 66 countries.

“With new clients already on board, our team lead by Captain Sunchai Sanguanpao, has done a great job and we opened for business in record time.”
