March 30 - Nordana Project and Chartering has appointed Rickmers-Linie as its agent in China.

With this step the two shipping lines strengthen their existing partnership, which began in June last year, when Nordana named Rickmers (Japan) as its general agent in the country.

The Rickmers-Linie representative office in China will support Nordana on marketing in China and will also coordinate documentation, including agency services through sub-agencies.

"Our partnership in Japan is working so well that we both decided to extend it to China. We look forward to serving all our customers jointly on a more global basis, especially in the markets of Asia, India, the Middle East and Africa," said Kai-Henrik von Taube, director line management at Rickmers-Linie.
