Wallem rebrands China agency division

Wallem rebrands China agency division

Hong Kong: Wallem Shipping (China) Limited is the new name for Pen-Wallem Shipping Services Company, effective from this week.
Alan Po, Wallem Shipping (China) Ltd General Manager, said Wallem would continue to provide the same services as Pen-Wallem.
"The new name better reflects our service level as we are, and have always been, an integral part of the Wallem Shipagencies network across South and East Asia," Mr Po said.
 "From our customers' point of view, the only difference they will experience is the new name on the door of our seven locations in China."
Wallem Shipping (China) Ltd provides ship agency services to all ports in China, and has its headquarters in Shanghai. It is part of the Wallem Shipagencies network covering 11 countries in Asia.
Wallem Shipagencies was the first fully licensed foreign port agency provider in China. It managed this feat by tying up with state-controlled Penavico, hence the Pen-Wallem name. A source at Wallem insisted that the Penavico relationship continues, despite the name change. 'They are still our partners, no change there,' said one Wallem employee. 'The new name better reflects the role they play in our network of agency offices in Asia.' [05/03/10]
