Inchcape Shipping Services (ISS), a maritime services provider, has expanded its network in Central and South America with the opening of ISS Venezuela in Puerto La Cruz, to satisfy strong customer demand.
Port Manager, Aldo M. Limongelli, who brings thirty eight years of experience in maritime operations such as chartering, bunkering, stevedoring, transportation, project cargo, logistics and green energies, will head up the new office, initially overseeing a staff of four, which is expected to increase as business develops.
Said Aldo Limongelli: “In a market driven by the oil, gas and dry bulk sectors, the opening of this new office will give ISS Central and South America regional operations a much needed presence across all key ports in Venezuela. It will enable ISS to directly serve our current client base with an extensive range of maritime, cargo and supply chain solutions, as well provide a base to explore new business opportunities in the region.”
Added Regional Executive Vice President, Jaime Otero: “New openings, business development and the geographical expansion of the ISS network in Central and South America are key strategic objectives for ISS.
“ISS is a global agent, who offers efficient, cost-effective and ethically compliant solutions delivered to the same international standards throughout its global network, and we are delighted to be able to extend the same service offerings and guarantees to our customers in Venezuela.”
