Cory Brothers opens regional hub in Singapore

Cory Brothers opens regional hub in Singapore

Singapore: UK-based Cory Brothers, part of the Braemar shipbroking group, has opened a South East Asia hub here to cater for its growing range of ship agency and freight services in the region.

Based on Middle Road, the new office will provide a wide range of shipping and agency services to ship owners, operators and charterers of all vessel types, including drydocking, crew change arrangements and stevedoring.

"All our Singapore services are linked to Cory Brothers' unique, in-house 'Ship-Trak' software which enables us to provide transparent and live tracking of vessel movement and cargo status," says Keith Lee, director of Cory Brothers Shipping Singapore.

Separately, the company has opened new offices back in the UK, Felixstowe, primarily intended to offer improved freight forwarding services following its acquisition of Freight Action Ltd at the end of 2008.

Cory Brothers, which began operations in Wales in 1842, provides a wide range of port, hub, liner, cruise and forwarding services from its bases throughout the UK and internationally. The company "continues to go from strength to strength", Braemar chairman Alan Marsh said at the Felixstowe office opening, adding: "marine service business divisions... now represent a growing percentage of the group's profitability".  [04/05/09]
