Russian river fleet supply agreement for Wilhelmsen Ships Service
Oct. 7, 2009 - The world's leading maritime service network Wilhelmsen Ships has reached its first service and supply agreement in the Russian river fleet market. The agreement, which was managed by the company's team in Eastern Europe, covers delivery of a broad range of Unitor branded marine products to Volga-Neva's 118-strong fleet of river vessels.
Following several months of negotiations, Wilhelmsen Ships Service's team in St. Petersburg, headed by Slava Khobta, was successful in its bid to supply its marine products to this major operator's fleet of dry cargo river vessels. These vessels trade in Russia's extensive network of rivers, through St. Petersburg and out into the Baltic and North Sea.
James Parsons, Area Director for Wilhelmsen Ships Service operations in Eastern Europe states " The supply agreement with Volga-Neva is an important milestone. It confirms our company's strategy to deliver standardised quality products to customers in Eastern Europe as we do in the rest of the world." He adds "We see great potential in Eastern Europe and are focused on growing our business here."
