Cambiaso & Risso Group, founded in Genoa in 1946, is one of the main international companies offering tailor-made shipping and logistics agency services to the maritime, cruising and yachting industries. Cambiaso & Risso has signed a partnership agreement with Fendercare Marine (part of James Fisher and Sons plc, listed on the London Stock Exchange) for Ship-to-Ship operations of liquid bulk cargoes in the port of Augusta (Sicily).
Because of this agreement, Cambiaso & Risso will manage the logistics related to the technical-nautical and port services, subsidiary to transhipment operations, both inside and outside of the port. The agreement also includes the creation of a specific structure in the seaport, designed in storing the necessary equipment and materials during the ship to ship operations.
Augusta is the biggest natural port in the Southern Mediterranean, and, due to its central position at the heart of international shipping routes, has been included by the European Union among the strategic ones in the TEN-T network. Given its natural geographical shape, Augusta roadstead benefits from favourable weather conditions even during the winter, making it a perfect stopover to carry out special operations such as those from ship to ship.
“We are proud and honoured that such an important company has chosen us to be their partner. We hope this partnership will be the beginning of a fruitful cooperation for future initiatives” – stated Giovanni Paolo Risso, President and Managing Director of Cambiaso&Risso International.
