ShipServ expands presence in Asia

ShipServ has opened a new office in Singapore.

The leading marine and offshore marketplace, which has an expected annual trade of $3bn in 2015, has opened the premises in an effort to capitalise on the current growth in maritime innovation.

The office will be managed by ShipServ’s VP of Sales Sharon Gill and will be open for business from July 1st.

“We are very excited to get much closer to one of the biggest and most vibrant shipping markets in the world and will look to increase our already substantial customer base in the region,” said Kim Skaarup, Chief Operating Officer of ShipServ.

Singaporean owners, managers and shipyards currently using ShipServ include Keppel Shipyard, Thome Ship Management, EMAS AMC, MOL Shipmanagement and American Eagle Tankers.  There are also 4000 Singaporean suppliers on the platform.

“The MPA and the SSA have been big advocates of innovation in shipping and with an established and growing user base in Singapore, it was a natural fit to set up this office,” said Gill.

ShipServ also has offices in London, Copenhagen, Hong Kong, USA and the Philippines with local agents in Brazil and Croatia.
