October 12 - In Brazil, Tropical Comercial Maritima, which has been operating as a commercial office for Clipper Lines since 1990, has changed its name to Clipper Projects Brasil Transportes Mar

Clipper Lines is a regular liner service from Brazil to West Africa and part of Clipper Projects, a strategic business unit of Clipper Group.

Clipper Projects Brasil Transportes Marítimos Ltda. will continue the strategic development of Clipper's Brazilian client base for both project and liner cargo and the company's staff based in São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro will remain unchanged.

Furthermore, the change of name does not effect Tropical Agencia Maritima Ltda., Santos, which will continue under its present name, providing agency services in Santos as well as other ports within Brazil.
