New facilities in Hamburg to serve thousands of calling vessels as well as locally domiciled shipping customers in Europe’s second largest port.
In its latest move to develop its global storage and warehousing infrastructure Wrist Ship Supply now sets up facilities in Hamburg. Last year Wrist upgraded its facilities in Corpus Christi in the Mexican Gulf, Peterhead in Scotland and Algeciras in Spain, the Spanish market now also being served by Wrist operations in Barcelona, Valencia and Las Palmas.
The reinforced operations in Hamburg step up Wrist’s service offering in the region, enhancing delivery time as well as frequency significantly. A growing number of customers already benefit from Hamburg’s location en route between Wrist’s large regional storage and warehousing facilities in Rotterdam and Denmark. At the same time, increased operational efficiency supports competitive pricing, essential to customers alongside their appreciation of Wrist’s service brand.
During centuries Hamburg has developed into Europe’s second largest port, following soon after the aggregate ports of Amsterdam, Rotterdam and Antwerp. Hamburg connects Northern and Central European markets with significant ports all over the World, and more than 11,000 ships call on the old Hansestadt each year.
Wrist’s German operations are to be headed by Mr. Steffen Siebert, who joins Wrist this autumn, bringing extensive experience from senior positions within international shipping support services.
