Wallem Ship Agency, a key service sector in Wallem Group’s maritime solutions value proposition, has a new leader in Dickson Chin, who has been promoted to the position of Managing Director.

Dickson Chin has been with Wallem Ship Agencies since 2008, initially in the role of General Manger for the Hong Kong ship agency business, and in 2012 was promoted to Managing Director for Indo-China. 

Simon Doughty, Group CEO, said “it is really rewarding to promote staff from within the organisation, especially when the individuals have shown outstanding leadership skills and fully deserve the promotion and the additional responsibilities that go with this new career challenge.

“Dickson will continue to ensure a high quality service delivery from our agency teams that our clients expect, and he will also mentor and coach individuals so that they can further their careers in the Group.”

Dickson will be leading a network of 26 offices across Asia, South Africa and Americas, with teams delivering a full port agency service and a range of marine and logistics services to vessel owners, operators, charterers and cargo interests.

The comprehensive service covers all vessel types including cruise ships, container vessels, heavy lift, bulk carriers, oil and gas tankers and naval vessels.

Wallem is a recognised cruise leader in Asia and the agency of choice for the world’s major cruise lines. Wallem was the first fully licensed foreign provider in China, offering services in all ports on the Mainland through the Wallem network.

Wallem is the General Sales Agent for Cargolux Airlines and Saudi Air Cargo in selected locations. The company also offers P&I services in Indochina and today represent most of the major P&I Clubs and leading Underwriters.

Dickson has been successfully leading the teams in Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam and Myanmar, mentoring key staff, coordinating the navy calls in the region, and building the business. He has also continued to support the growth of Wallem’s cruise business across Asia; Wallem now handles more than 450 cruise port calls every year.

Dickson is highly regarded and has a well-deserved excellent reputation with clients and staff.

Höegh Autoliners signed a nine vessel ship management deal with Wallem…

Höegh Autoliners signed a nine vessel ship management deal with Wallem Ship Management yesterday at the Höegh headquarters in Oslo, Norway.

The ship management agreement cements a deal between the companies, with Wallem delivering technical and crew management to nine PCTCs from its Singapore base.

Wallem broadened its ship management business to Singapore in 2013, complementing the company’s existing ship agency services in the city state, providing an attractive option for ship owners looking for access to Singapore’s maritime business advantages.

Wallem Ship Management Managing Director Ray Mc Namara said Höegh would be a feather in Wallem’s client cap.

“Höegh is such an extremely well-known and reputable ship owner in Europe and Asia, and we are very proud to efficiently and safely manage their ships,” said Mr Mc Namara.

“The signing of the ship management contract is an important occasion for Wallem and by delivering reliable services from Hong Kong, Singapore and Hamburg, we can continue to attract reputable ship owners.”

Wallem will take over vessel management of the nine vessels in a staged process from May 2014.

With the addition of these new vessels, Wallem Ship Management will be managing 30 PCC/PCTCs for ship owners such as NYK Line, and the Singapore fleet will grow to 22 vessels.

Wallem is well known in the maritime industry for its ship management and technical services, and today remains a key service for the Group. Recently Mr Iaonnis Stefanou has joined the Group to lead the technical teams in Hong Kong, Singapore and Europe as the business positions itself for continued growth.

Mr. Stefanou has vast experience in senior commercial and technical roles with both ship owners and third party managers.

The ship management services delivered by Wallem have recently been acknowledged by Seatrade with the Ship Manager of the Year Award, and the ITF-backed ISWAN (International Seafarers Welfare Association Network) Award for Shipping Company of the Year, illustrating Wallem is on the rise in a market of ship owners looking for the best service for ship and crew.
