Wallem, the most diversified services organization in the maritime industry, has established two offices in South Africa, a key location for the maritime industry. The new offices enable the Group to meet client demand, provide a wide array of services and to provide the Group with a footprint in an important and strategic location.

Located in Durban and Cape Town, the offices provide ship agency and logistics services for all ports in South Africa. The offices will also handle client business for other markets in Africa, including Mozambique, Namibia and other destinations in southern parts of the Indian Ocean.

“Wallem continues to execute well on its strategy to provide more maritime solutions in more locations to meet client needs,” said Group Managing Director Simon Doughty. “The Group recently announced a significant milestone by opening its first global hub of expertise in Singapore and the opening of our offices in South Africa illustrates our commitment to continue providing more maritime solutions to our customers in more markets.”

The offices will be run by veteran maritime professionals Nils Warner, Director, and Iain Leckie, Regional Manager, who have deep experience in both the industry and the region. They have been working in the South Africa ship agency business and maritime industry for more than 30 years each, forming one of the most experienced teams in the country.
