Maersk Broker will become a partner of Wonsild Dry

 

Wonsild will gain Maersk Broker as a strategic partner capitalizing on synergies within dry bulk, asset/project business and research.

 

We are pleased to announce that Maersk Broker K/S will become a partner of Wonsild Dry by taking a strategic ownership in the dry cargo chartering activities of Wonsild with immediate effect. Wonsild Dry will continue to be managed and operated as an independent company continuing its long history within the dry cargo market.

 

Wonsild Dry will seek to extract synergies from co-operating with the global Maesk Broker organisation offering a wide range of services within not only dry cargo chartering (spot, medium and long term period business), but also within asset/project business and research.

 

Bjarne Wium-Ullerichs will act as the Managing Director of Wonsild Dry domiciled in Copenhagen. Anders Boye and Tim Wright will be heading up the Singapore operation, while Jan Lasalle Skipper and Flemming Buh will remain in charge of the Hong Kong office respectively the actvities in the USA.

 

"We are very happy to welcome Maersk Broker as a shareholder in our company. We genuinely believe that the services of our organisation will complement the Maersk Broker position. With this strong partner on-board we are able to optimise and improve the depth and scope of the services provided, ultimately leading to an improved overall service level in the eyes of our customers", says Bjarne Wium-Ullerichs, Wonsild Dry.

 

"For some time Maersk Broker have actively tried to enlarge our dry cargo activities and we have identified Wonsild Dry as a valuable longterm partner with a strong group of high quality shipbrokers that we have known for a long time.

 

Despite the negative market, the expansion of our dry cargo activities will continue as we see this market segment offering long term and attractive business potential. Consequently, we will continue our dialogue with other possible new ways of working - and thinking - and we trust and hope that clients of both Wonsild and Maersk Broker will benefit from this strategic alliance," commented Claes Devantier, Maersk Broker.

 

Wonsild's tanker activities will not be affected by or be part of the partnership with Maersk Broker.
