September 11 - Denmark headquartered Blue Water Shipping (BWS) will establish its own office in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, which will focus on developing its oil, gas and industrial projects business as well as its general cargo, wind and reefer logistics

The new office will open on October 1, 2013 and well be led by general manager in Vietnam, Flemming Johannesen, who has worked and built experience in the country for the past seven years. Six Vietnamese staff will work at the branch to ensure that local assignments can be handled from day one.
