Shipping line's scottish move
TAIWANESE transportation group Yang Ming has become the first container shipping line in over a decade to open a new branch office in Scotland.
Yang Ming Shipping Scotland extends the portfolio of services the group already offers from its Romford and Felixstowe offices in the south of England – they include full commercial, operational and documentation functions. The group says the Scottish market represents an important expansion opportunity – supporting its further development. Its new office is in Glasgow.
Regional Commercial Director David Milne said: “We are centralising Scottish activity within our Glasgow branch; our team will be led by local people, with local market knowledge. “The branch will provide Scotland based shippers, consignees and forwarders with direct access to the Yang Ming service portfolio. “It will also increase our current footprint within the Scottish market and additionally expand the customer service excellence that is synonymous with the group.” The announcement coincided with the maiden voyage of one of Yang Ming’s largest container vessel, YM Witness, a 14,000teu new build which docked at Felixstowe.
