Peters & May names agent in Dubai

April 26 - Marine logistics provider, Peters & May has appointed Consolidated Shipping Services L.L.C as its agent for the Middle East.

Consolidated Shipping Services L.L.C has fully operational bases in Jebel Ali Freezone and the key DAFZA (Dubai Airport Free Zone) as well as benefits from a further five offices in Dubai alone to allow the smoothest and specialist on-the-ground support. The company provides freight forwarding and logistics via air, land and sea, which is handled by over 1,000 employees working across its network of offices around the world, including locations in key areas within the UAE and throughout the Gulf.

Gerald Price (seen below), managing director of Peters & May comments, "Due to the increased volume of business being carried out by our local Dubai office, we have found it necessary to appoint an agent with an existing network of offices in the region, which will support the growth that we are anticipating in the Middle East. Following this appointment, we will be integrating the work of our existing local Dubai office into the operations at Consolidated Shipping Services, which will enable us to further extend our reach of skills and expertise beyond Dubai and into the far reaching corners of the Middle East. We have great faith in the future development of the leisure marine industry in the Middle East and are putting these plans in place to maximise opportunities throughout the region."

T. S. Kaladharan (seen below), CSS Group chairman says, "We are extremely delighted to work hand in hand with Peters & May and together we will be able to utilise the extensive experience of Consolidated Shipping Services in managing turn-key projects and handling specialist cargo movements in the Middle East. With the growth of marine activity and developments in the UAE we too recognise the need to partner with a firm that has received global recognition in yacht transportation. We share the same level of professionalism that has made us recognised leaders in our specialist fields and are confident that this co-operation will be mutually beneficial for both CSS and Peters & May."
