Inchcape Shipping Services to open office in Bangkok

Paul Boughton
Inchcape Shipping Services (ISS), the leading maritime services provider, will open a new office in Bangkok on 1st March. 

The opening of the ISS Thailand office, with newly recruited management and staff, follows the ending of a franchise agreement between ISS and ISS Thoresen Agencies.

The new team is drawn from large international shipping agencies and their experience encompasses all vessel and cargo types in all major Thai ports.

They will be led by general manager, Thaveesak Chowchankit, who joins ISS from the Bangkok Shipowners & Agents Association. The operations manager is Capt. Sunchai Sanguanpao, who since coming ashore in 1997, had worked for ISS Thoresen for over a decade.

Tony Brazenor, regional operations manager of ISS Asia Pacific, said: “Following a period in which we have relied exclusively on partnership and franchise arrangements in Thailand, the opening of a well-staffed Bangkok office marks a real commitment to shipowners using Thai ports.”
