InterManager, the international trade association for in-house and third party ship managers, has extended its membership from within the influential Middle Eastern shipping markets and welcomes Overseas Marine Logistics (OML) as a full member.
United Arab Emirates-based OML provides ship management services and operations to worldwide clients, specialising in offshore project management, commercial and technical management and vessel chartering.
InterManager President Gerardo Borromeo said: “I am pleased to report that InterManager is receiving more applications for membership from around the globe. I believe the shipping community is becoming more and more aware of the benefits of speaking with one voice on key issues and recognises the role bodies like InterManager can play in representing their interests and speaking out for the industry.”
InterManager represents the interests of the ship management sector on the global maritime stage, particularly at meetings of the International Maritime Organisation and other key industry bodies. In addition its members work together to improve the performance and efficiency of global shipmanagement, to highlight and share best practice and to initiate and implement meaningful performance monitoring across the world.
Stergianni Katrini, Business Development Manager of OML said: “OML felt this was the right time to join InterManager, as the work it has achieved has resounded within the international maritime community. We look forward to collaborating with fellow maritime companies to the benefit of our sector and in ensuring that ship managers gain the recognition they deserve within the international maritime industry.”
