Hong Kong: Wilhelmsen Ships Service has begun its role as the Toyofuji Shipping Company’s agent in Hong Kong, in charge of their vessels calling at the port and to oversee the discharge and loading of the cargo. The first Toyofuji vessel attended by Wilhelmsen called at Modern Terminals at the end of August and it is expected that between four and six vessels will be calling at Hong Kong Port each month.
Two of the representatives of Toyofuji Shipping, Seiichi Sawada and Alex Fujioka will be based at Wilhelmsen Ships Service’s Kwun Tong office to ensure close liaison between the two companies.
“We gained this contract as a direct result of the professionalism shown by our operations team when we attended the Ro-Ro vessels from Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics and EUKOR,” said Wilhelmsen Ship Service’s Hong Kong office gm Gur-Prasad Kohli commented.
Toyofuji is the sole marine transport provider to the Toyota Group on both domestic and international routes and also operate terminals in Japan for the import and export of cars. [17/09/09]
