Inchcape Shipping Services (ISS), the world’s
leading maritime and logistics service provider, has expanded its global
business with Danish tramp shipping company, NORDEN A/S, with a new contract
for crew logistics and husbandry services.
Under the additional agreement for the dry
cargo and tanker specialist, ISS will co-ordinate over 2,800 crew changes per
year across 32 vessels worldwide, as well as husbandry and disbursement account
processing. The arrangement with ISS will support NORDEN’s operations and
accounting teams and provide a single point of contact and remittance, negating
the need for multiple, regional agents.
ISS will help improve cost scheduling for core
services and ensure greater transparency. NORDEN will also benefit from cost
savings as a result of ISS’ global vendor agreements and volume.
Managed from the ISS Vessel Supply Chain Hub in
Mumbai, the company will work with NORDEN in key locations across Europe, the
Americas and the Middle East, including Rotterdam, Houston and Fujairah.
Comments Ole Lykke, Head of Strategic
Purchasing: “NORDEN is very satisfied to date with the performance and service
from ISS - the Disbursement Account handling especially is a cost saving
initiative and also saves us time.”
Adds Gavin Griffin, Executive Vice-President,
Europe & North Africa, ISS: “We are delighted to win additional global
business with NORDEN. This new contract demonstrates the value of our Crew
Logistics Services (CLS) and I’m very pleased to have NORDEN join our other
major CLS customers.”
