It gives us great pleasure to inform you that the Steder Group has opened an office In Singapore under the name STEDER SINGAPORE PTE LTD.
We felt that a local presence in the South East Asian market is necessary to support our existing business as well to create new business opportunities for our group. It is a natural expansion of our existing office network. We considered Singapore, being South East Asia’s maritime and logistics epicentre, to be the logical choice as our base of operation. The success of such a venture however is not only determined by its location but also by finding the right staff.
In this respect we are glad to have recruited Mr.Dirk Ghys to manage and coordinate our Asian activities. Dirk is an experienced maritime and logistics professional who started his maritime career in 1983 after having completed his studies at the Nautical School of Antwerp. Having spent his first working years spent at sea, he “came ashore” in 1990 and has since been active in various managerial capacities with leading maritime and logistics companies.
Initially we will focus ourselves on following activities
- Port Services (Port Agency / Ship’s spares logistics):
Steder Group is already a leading player in the Amsterdam, Rotterdam and Antwerp range. In partnership with an established agency we intend to provide our clientele with the same high level of service in Singapore.
- Project Logistics:
Having our own office in Singapore we will be able to further improve our services in the Asian market, both for existing and future business. Proximity to the local market will enhance our service portfolio. It will also increase our speed of response and our competitiveness. We will also actively promote our “heavy cargo logistics” capabilities in East Africa for business originating from South East Asia (and the Far East) through our operation in Djibouti.
- Chartering / Brokerage:
Complimentary to our European chartering and brokerage activities we will now also be able to serve our clients in the Asian market. This will entail sourcing the right cargoes for ship-owners as well as finding the right tonnage for (bulk) cargo shippers.
Additional services will be added at a later stage.
