Port of Everett appoints US Midwest representative to boost shipping

August 26 - In the USA, the Port of Everett has contracted with Interocean Steamship Corporation, represented by Jim Bavaro, to serve as the Port's agent in the US Midwest to help facilitate and generate additional cargo opportunities.

Interocean Steamship Corporation, based San Rafael, USA specialises in the movement of high and heavy cargo. 

Bavaro (pictured below), based in Chicago, Illinois, has more than 17 years in the shipping industry, and brings extensive knowledge of container, barge, ro-ro, and lo-lo sales in the Australia, New Zealand, Far East and Puerto Rico trades.

"As a specialist in breakbulk and over-dimensional cargo, I am pleased to be able to offer support to the port of Everett's customer needs in the Midwest," Bavaro said. "Our flexible and global services will be an additional asset to the port and its customers."

Bavaro is skilled in freight forwarding services, and has represented major carriers, such as Russian owned Far Eastern Shipping Company (FESCO), Trailer Bridge and US Lines. FESCO is one of the Port of Everett's long term liner service operators. Eastern Car Liner and Westwood Shipping Lines also offer regular liner service between Asia and Everett.

"A large part of our cargo mix is heavy equipment exports that originate from the Midwest," said Carl Wollebek, chief operating officer for the port of Everett. "Having a presence in the Midwest will allow us to maximise our market exposure and better communicate the advantages of moving cargo through the Port of Everett."

Interocean began representing the Port on August 15, 2011.
