With the opening of its first office in Santiago, Chile, Denmark-based Blue Water Shipping is establishing a strategic hub to serve the Latin American market.

In addition to several Blue Water offices in Brazil, the company said the new location in Latin America will give the global transport and logistics company a set-up to meet the need for project logistics in the region.

“We believe that local presence is key to maintaining close market reach and continued growth. With recent developments in the Latin American market, opening a first office in Chile fits our strategic approach to be close to our clients,” said Brent Patterson, Global Director of Energy, Ports and Projects at Blue Water.

The office will focus on transport and logistics for energy and projects – but moving forward, it could expand with services and activities within other business segments. It will offer a broad range of logistics services, including project logistics, supply and service contracts, technical engineering support for heavy lift/oversized cargoes and vessel chartering solutions.

“Our establishment in the region represents a change in the logistics paradigm. We are known for our dedicated and exceptional services. Together we create solutions means that we find the best possible solution for each client, supported by our international offices, top-notch personnel, value-added services, and IT solutions”, added Martijn Pentermann, General Manager, Blue Water Santiago.
