Inchcape Shipping Services to expand customer base with office opening in Venezuela.
Inchcape Shipping Services (ISS), the world’s leading maritime services provider, is set to capitalise on local and global customer demand for services in Venezuela with the opening of its first office in the country. The new office is part of ISS’s South America expansion strategy which will see it open more offices in Venezuela and other parts of the subcontinent. ISS, which has worked in Venezuela for many years through qualified sub-agents, has opened the office in Puerto La Cruz to meet the country’s growing demand for shipping services, particularly in the tanker, offshore and liner sectors. The office will also enable ISS to take advantage of the growth in cruise business in the country.
Juan Carlos Trujillo of ISS Venezuela, said: “The Venezuelan economy is steadily expanding and we are now well-positioned to service the needs of shipowners and operators using her ports.
“The new office enables us to capitalise on market opportunities and also enhance the service to existing customers. In seeking to become the largest proprietary agency network on the subcontinent, this will be the first of a number of new offices in the Venezuela and across South America.”
