UASC and UAAA tie the knot on Australian trades

UASC and UAAA tie the knot on Australian trades

Sydney: Inchcape Shipping Services subsidiary United Arab Agencies (Australia) Pty. Limited (UAAA) has been appointed agent for United Arab Shipping Company across Australia. The appointment coincides with the launch of UASC's new Asia Australia Container Service 1 known as "AAC1" which will cover the trade lane from Australia to Southeast Asia as of September 2010. "AAC1" will be operated jointly between UASC, Hyundai Merchant Marine, China Shipping Container Lines and Hapag Lloyd, with one vessel deployed by each carrier of 2,200 to 2,300 TEUs.

Port rotation will cover Port Kelang, Singapore, Fremantle, Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide and Port Kelang.

The formation of UAAA sees the continuing strong development of ISS Australia's Liner presence in recent times and this appointment represents a further significant step forward in the sector. ISS remains one of the leading independent agencies in the region.

Royce Brain, Regional SVP for ISS Australasia said: "This is another important appointment for an ISS Australian Group company and we are proud to serve UASC. We look forward to helping them develop their business through our extensive Liner experience across our 26-branch nationwide network."  [03/08/10]
