Peters and May appoints Mideast logistics agent
Peters & May, a global specialist in marine logistics, has appointed Consolidated Shipping Services as its agent for the Middle East.
Strategically headquartered in Dubai, Consolidated Shipping Services has fully operational bases in Jebel Ali Free Zone and Dubai Airport Free Zone, as well as five additional offices in Dubai.
“It has always been our goal to select partners that are well-placed and capable of meeting the requirements of our worldwide customers. We recognise the proven ability of Consolidated Shipping Services to deliver service to the highest calibre because of its set-up of offices in key locations, strong contacts and access to local officials and customs clearance for quick and efficient support,” stated Gerald Price, managing director of Peters & May.
“Due to the increased volume of business being carried out by our local Dubai office, we have found it necessary to appoint an agent with an existing network of offices in the region, which will support the growth that we are anticipating in the Middle East. Following this appointment, we will be integrating the work of our existing local Dubai office into the operations at Consolidated Shipping Services, which will enable us to further extend our reach of skills and expertise beyond Dubai and into the far reaching corners of the Middle East. We have great faith in the future development of the leisure marine industry in the Middle East and are putting these plans in place to maximise opportunities throughout the region.”
Consolidated Shipping Services provides freight forwarding and logistics services via air, land and sea, which is handled by over 1000 employees working across its network of offices.
T. S. Kaladharan, CSS Group Chairman says, “We are extremely delighted to work hand in hand with Peters & May and together we will be able to utilise the extensive experience of Consolidated Shipping Services L.L.C in managing turn-key projects and handling specialist cargo movements in the Middle East. With the growth of marine activity and developments in the UAE we too recognise the need to partner with a firm that has received global recognition in yacht transportation. We share the same level of professionalism that has made us recognised leaders in our specialist fields and are confident that this co-operation will be mutually beneficial for both CSS and Peters & May.”
