Following the launch of our tramp & projects shipping cooperation in May 2015 with Peter Döhle, we have just announced the establishment of a new operation in Italy, through Genoa-based shipping company, OceanWise Corp (OWC), who will act as the cooperation’s commercial agents.
Based in Genoa, OWC will provide customers in Italy and wider Europe with tailor-made tramp and projects solutions to all trading points around the world.
Commenting on the development, Namir Khanbabi said: “The launch of this new operation in Italy is testament to the ambitions of the AAL & Peter Döhle co-operation, as well as the expansion of our customer base in Europe and their growing demand for evermore efficient and convenient project cargo solutions.”
John Jensen, General Manager of Peter Döhle, added: “The timing of this development could not have been better. We are seeing that despite increased competition, the market still places high value on working with operators that have a genuine understanding and solid expertise in transporting extremely valuable and complex cargoes – where safety and quality cannot be compromised.”
Maurizio Pigna, Chartering Director of OWC, concluded: “We will work with a wide range of customers from major industry sectors in Italy & Europe. In sectors like renewable energy there is real growth and, with our vast market experience and strong global partners in AAL & Peter Döhle, we are perfectly positioned to provide highly competitive transport solutions between any compass point.”
