Hoegh Autoliners names Jardine Shipping Services as agent for SE Asia

April 8 - Hoegh Autoliners has appointed Hong Kong's Jardine Shipping Services as its southeast Asia agent.

"Ten to 12 years ago, we had a very high level of activity in this area but after the tiger crisis, much of the cargo base disappeared. In 2009, we decided to take a closer look at certain markets. We were recently awarded new business out of the area and have already established two new services catering for exports," said Per Folkesson, Hoegh Autoliners' head of region south Asia, Oceania, Middle East and Africa.

"In trying to establish a first class service portfolio, we believe it is critical to have an agency network supporting us, which can provide regional synergies. In Jardine, we believe that we have found the right partner," said Mr Folkesson.

Said Jardine Shipping Services CEO Terence Sit: "From our network of offices across the region, we look forward to providing customers with the exemplary levels of service and customer care for which Hoegh Autoliners is widely recognised."

Under the deal, Jardine will provide port agency, logistics, sales and customer services.
