demonstrated by Wilhelmsen Ships Service. The company has
introduced two new key offers in the past twelve months
including the new Ships Spares Logistics and Ships Agency
Re-Defined projects, both of which have considerably simplified
administration and logistics for ship owners and operators. The
panel of judges also considered contribution and commitment to
the development of the maritime sector across the region,
commitment to safety and quality, and social and environmental
responsibilities, amongst other qualities.
