Safmarine looking for growth in South America
Nov 3, 2003
Multi-trade ship owner and operator Safmarine says it expects to grow its market in South America following the opening of Safmarine offices in Buenos Aires and Montevideo.
Safmarine previously operated through a third party agency, Navegecion Atlantica, but with the opening last month of its own offices, which has included the absorption of all sales, customer service and finance staff from the agency, Safmarine believes it is now well on course for further growth in the South American market.
These new offices will serve as a platform for further growth in the South American market, says Jens Norgaard, Safmarine's Regional Executive for the Americas, who adds that Safmarine is now able to offer customers its range of personalised shipping solutions, including the full range of e-Commerce facilities.
Safmarine currently offers direct shipping services between the East Coast of South America and the destinations to Europe, East Coast North America, South Africa/Indian Ocean Island and Middle East/India/Pakistan.
Services from South America also extend, via transhipment, to West Africa, East Africa, Australia and the Far East.
The company will hold two customer events during November to celebrate the opening of the offices.
