Parekh Marine Agency gets on board with Multiport

Mumbai: The world's largest shipping agency network Multiport has announced the appointment of a new member for India: The Parekh Marine Agency. The agency, which boasts 18 offices and 500 employees across India, currently holds accounts for Delmas, France (for shipments to and from Africa) and Sinokor, Korea (which covers operations between Colombo, Dubai and Nhava Sheva). STAR Ship International Malaysia also has an account with Parekh to co-ordinate its container operations between Singapore and Mumbai.
"Parekh is a highly regarded agency in India and can now develop new links with additional ship owners and charterers through our network of international contacts," says Multiport secretary-general Peter Titchener (pictured). "In turn, Parekh offers Multiport considerable knowledge and expertise of the local area.  It adds to our expertise and provides additional security for principals with vessels visiting India."

"The ongoing expansion and success of our network is based on two-way relationships: independent agencies learn from each other to create a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts," he concludes.  [23/04/08]
