Rickmers establishes Korean subsidiary

Seoul: Hamburg-based breakbulk, heavylift and project cargo specialist Rickmers-Linie, has announced that it is tos establish a new subsidiary, Rickmers (Korea) Inc, in Seoul effective November 1.

''With its export oriented industry and as a significant location for shipping and related industries, Korea is one of our key markets in the Far East,'' said Gerhard Janssen, marketing & sales gm at Rickmers-Linie. "Thus it was a logical decision to establish our own office in Seoul. The new subsidiary will primarily take over the role of Rickmers-Linie's agent (Korea Maritime) in Korea and moreover will be the representative office for Rickmers Group in Korea."

Rickmers-Linie offers regular sailings fortnightly from Korea to the United States and destinations in Central America, as well as a monthly westbound service from the US to Korea.  [18/10/07]
