Rickmers-Linie Appoints New Agents in Two Countries

March 27, 2012

Rickmers-Linie, the Hamburg based operator of heavy lift and project liner services, is now actively serving Bangladesh and Sri Lanka with direct calls in Chittagong and Colombo, respectively.

It has therefore appointed new agents in these two countries. In addition, a new agency has been selected in the Port of Nantes St. Nazaire in France. All have been appointed with immediate effect.
In Bangladesh, the new agent is HSR Ocean Trades, located in Chittagong.  In Sri Lanka, the new agent is Diamond Shipping Services (Pvt) Ltd., located in Colombo. The company also has a branch office in Galle.

In October, 2011, Rickmers-Linie announced that it had won a long-term contract to transport fuselage sections for Airbus from Morehead City, North Carolina, to Montoir (Port of Nantes St Nazaire) in Northern France. The fuselage sections are designed for the Airbus A350 XWB series.

Taking advantage of these regular calls, Rickmers-Linie has now appointed an agent in the Port of Nantes St. Nazaire, namely Sogebras. This company will seek to attract additional local cargo which could be loaded or discharged in Montoir.
