Inchcape Shipping Services (ISS) has secured a global husbandry representation contract with Campbell Shipping, based in The Bahamas. This new agreement will see ISS handle approximately 300 port calls per annum and provide a range of services including fully managed crew changes, visa and documentation management, transfer to vessel, Cash to Master, spare parts consignment delivery co-ordination and other husbandry requirements, all handled by a single point of contact across its global network.
Originating from Scottish naval architect George Campbell’s decision to design and mass produce one of the most ingenious series of ships ever built, Campbell Shipping currently manages a fleet of 13 dry-bulk carriers built and maintained to the highest standards. The vessels are capable of accessing the majority of global ports, trade globally and are chartered out to reputable companies and commodity traders. Additionally, Campbell Shipping provide Technical, Risk and Project Management services, while Campbell Bulk provides commercial management services.
Capt. Rajesh Dhadwal, Managing Director / CEO, Campbell Shipping, said: “The Company undertook all the required due-diligence in the tendering process. We were impressed with the competitiveness and flexibility ISS could offer in the current market, which gave us a lot of confidence that they are well positioned to manage our bespoke set of requirements in this agreement. Additionally, the size of their global network and the option of having all our activity managed by a single point of contact were both significantly important when it came to making our decision to choose ISS.”
“This is an exciting new agreement for ISS and we are grateful to Campbell Shipping for giving us this opportunity,” added Ryan Jurewicz, ISS Commercial Vice President. “Both companies share a similar philosophy on how to achieve exceptional customer service, so we look forward to solidifying our working relationship as their business grows.”
