The Bahamas-based Campbell Shipping has entered into a global husbandry representation contract with Inchcape Shipping Services (ISS).
Under the deal, ISS will handle some 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 to the company.
Campbell Shipping currently manages a fleet of 13 dry-bulk carriers, capable of accessing the majority of global ports.
“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,” Rajesh Dhadwal, Managing Director and CEO at Campbell Shipping, said.
“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,” Dhadwal added.
