Wilhelmsen Ships Service (WSS) appointed Russell Dinwoodie as General Manager for the company’s operations in Kuwait. Russell’s focus will be on maintaining leading market share in the region and growing its latest projects, the globally standardized Ships Agency Redefined and Ships Spares Logistics initiatives. He will also be responsible for developing product sales, which include the company’s Unitor brand of products, to vessel operators and owners in Kuwait. Kuwait holds 10% of the world’s oil reserves and 8% of worldwide oil production. It is also a significant shipping hub for Iraq supplies and equipment.
“With major infrastructure and investment programs worth $104b underway, this is a highly important area for Wilhelmsen Ships Service as the country’s development positively impacts on shipping and logistics requirements,” said Dinwoodie. “It is important for us to further develop the offer in maritime logistics services that support the regional logistics service provision, for example providing logistic shipping solutions for major contractors and oil companies into Iraq via Kuwait.”
