Established in February this year, as a joint venture between Sharaf Shipping Agency and Ben Line Agencies, Waterfront Maritime Services has added three more regional ship agency companies to its network. Ultramar will cover the West Coast of South America; ACGI the West Coast of North America; and Royal Burger will represent the agency in Europe.
The initiative takes the total number of local offices to 413 in 66 countries. WaterFront specialises in the handling of dry and liquid bulk cargoes and has formed its network by bringing together leading regional agencies. The company, headquartered in Dubai, with commercial offices in Singapore and Miami, acts as a global service provider by using a tailored-made IT system to coordinate all agency and husbandry tasks in real time.
