UK-based maritime services provider Inchcape Shipping Services (ISS) has signed a new port agency contract with Bermuda-based chemical tanker owner and operator Team Tankers International for the US East Coast and Caribbean region.
The contract is the ISS’ first in the Americas, according to the company.
“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,” according to ISS.
Earlier this month, ISS expanded its European business with Team Tanker International with a port agency contract across the region.
“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,” the firm said.
ISS has been providing port agency for Team Tankers International since 2013.
Team Tankers International currently operates a fleet of over 40 chemical tankers.
