Wagenborg Adds Agency Services in Eastern Finland
As from the new year a new Wagenborg Agency branch office will be operational for ports in Eastern Finland
With Wagenborg’s leading position in the shipping and logistics market – especially on the Finnish market – the expansion of agency services to Finland is a valuable addition to Wagenborg’s network of serviced ports. The main focus of the Finnish agency office will be the port of Hamina/Kotka and the entire lake Saimaa area. In addition, agency services can be provided in all other ports along the south coast of Finland: from Naantali in the west to Loviisa in the east.
In these Finnish ports Wagenborg can be contacted 24/7 year-round for agency services ensuring ships a quick turnaround in these ports. On a yearly basis about 400 port calls can be expected in these ports.
With a team of shipping agents, under management of Aleksei Kumpulainen, Wagenborg again demonstrates her ‘think global, act local’ way of working. “Our presence in Finland means that our customers can be assured that our shipping agents have the local knowledge and industry expertise to find the best solution to cater for their needs“, explains Coos Blaauw (Chartering Manager).
