Inchcape Shipping Services (ISS), the world’s leading maritime and logistics service provider, has signed a new port agency contract with Team Tankers International for the US East Coast and Caribbean region - its first in the Americas.
The chemical tanker specialist has called on ISS to provide full port agency services to deliver a consistently high level of service throughout the region. ISS was awarded the contract after demonstrating its efficiency, transparency and quality of service to Team Tankers International’s operations team in the US, along with its expertise in the chemical sector and strength of its global network.
The new business complements ISS’ relationship with the company in Europe which recently expanded to provide port agency services across all major European ports and terminals.
