Wilhelmsen Ships Service receives IBJ Bulk Ships Agent Award
Dec. 1, 2009 - Wilhelmsen Ships Service is delighted to have been presented with the Bulk Ships Agent Award by global shipping magazine International Bulk Journal. The Awards were presented at a dinner ceremony in Amsterdam on 23rd November.
The prestigious Award, sponsored by Euroports, is a great accolade for Wilhelmsen Ships Service, who beat stiff competition to become the winner. The Award recognised the company's excellent handling of the requirements of dry bulk vessels, the way we had demonstrated our understanding of the specialist needs of bulk ships and their operators, and the unique requirements for local knowledge.
The IBJ award citation praised Wilhelmsen Ships Service. "Raising their own service standards to help customers' operational efficiency and predictability, whilst focusing on distinct markets, lead our judges to choose this winner. They demonstrated their ability to meet the specific needs of the dry bulk sector and we congratulate all at Wilhelmsen."
Receiving the award on behalf of Wilhelmsen Ships Service, Baard Bjoerloew commented, "We are proud and honoured to have been presented with the IBJ's Bulk Ships Agent Award. He added, "This is the ultimate recognition for our personnel around the world who have worked so hard to meet the individual needs of our bulk customers. Team work is of key importance in underpinning the excellence of our services, and this award crowns a busy and successful year for Wilhelmsen Ships Service."
"We want to congratulate everyone who has contributed," continued Baard. "We constantly endeavour to be the leaders in our field and we are very pleased that this has been recognised by the judging panel."
The excellent news was received with great enthusiasm in the Wilhelmsen Ships Service offices around the world.
In addition to ships agency services, Wilhelmsen Ships Service supplies Unitor marine products, technical services, and maritime logistics.
