Inchcape Shipping Services has opened an office at Walvis Bay in Namibia giving the group a footlhold foothold on the southwestern seaboard of the continent.
The office is managed by Reinhardt Küsters. Küsters became involved in the ship agency sector with King & Sons and was also appointed managing director of Erundu Stevedoring before joining ISS as general manager, Namibia.
Terry Gidlow, executive vice president group strategy, said: “The entry into Namibia is in line with our 2015 Strategy Plan by expanding our presence and globalising the range of services we offer through our network, as an integral part of our unique Enterprise Value Proposition. The entry into Namibia follows on closely after our acquisition of Global Marine Travel during May of this year.”
