April 1 - The Martin Bencher Group has opened a new office in Marseille as a joint venture between Martin Bencher Denmark and Floris Schorsch.

Schorsch, who is now manager of Martin Bencher France, had been head of the CMA-CGM Project Division based in Marseille and has many years of experience and practical insights into project cargo.

"The opening of the French office is an answer to the market requirements. France is the world's 5th largest economy and many industrial shippers are among the world leaders in their respective market," said Schorsch.

"The Martin Bencher Group is already dealing with French customers in many countries, but up to now not in France directly. This will change with opening an office in Marseille from April 1st."

"The French office is a joint venture benefitting from the extensive network, expert knowledge and the numerous references of Martin Bencher Group," said Peter Thorsoe Jensen, CEO and CFO of Martin Bencher Group.
