2012 03 10

INCHCAPE Shipping Services (ISS) has established a new office in Malta with a newly recruited management team, after ending a sub-agency agreement with local firm Thomas Smith.

The new ISS office will cover all ports in Malta with the new team drawn from large international shipping agencies and having experience of all vessel and cargo types, a company statement said.

The newly appointed ISS country manager is Ray Turban who joins the company from a local agency firm. With 25 years' industry experience, Mr Turban's expertise extends to all agency activities, covering all cargo commodity types, ship husbandry matters, crew logistic services, ship to ship, cruise, liner and vessel repairs. The Malta branch will continue to be supported by the company's Greek unit, based in Piraeus.

Said ISS Greek manager Christos Makrialeas: "Geographical expansion in the Mediterranean and beyond is a key strategic objective of ISS," adding that the same model will be followed in other countries in the Mediterranean region.
