The move is part of the company's global expansion plans, which have recently seen offices opening in Manzanillo, Mexico; Naples, Italy; and Valencia, Spain.

Tuscor Lloyds' business is diversified in two key areas, general cargo project work and liner work comprising full and part load containers. The company also arranges out-of-profile shipments for the oil, gas and construction industries. Its liner division is heavily involved in the South American, Central American and North African markets, offering weekly shipments from various North European ports.
