United Heavy Lift (UHL) and Ocean7 Projects (Ocean7) have appointed a joint agent in Dubai, under the United Ocean 7 brand. Both UHL and Ocean7 specialise in the transport of heavy, project and breakbulk cargo.
The two ocean transport specialists will continue to cover all market segments of their industry through their cooperation in the new office, offer their customers an even larger and more diverse overall fleet and make their combined know-how and experience available.
The Dubai office is the 3rd joint branch office opened by United Heavy Lift and Ocean7 Projects. Last year the two specialised carriers joined forces with dedicated teams in Bergen and Kuala Lumpur with sub-branches in Beijing and Tokyo.
Christian Monsted, Managing Director of United Heavy Lift Denmark office: “I am very happy to be able to work together with my longtime colleague Anup Antony. UHL has had a wish to extend our presence in the Middle East/India for some time, and after Anup Antony became available, on the back of the Zeamarine closure, we started discussions in order to be able to land this agreement.”
Both Lexicon Overseas, headed by Ashok Vaid, and Electra Shipping Services, led by Electra Fernandez, will continue their longstanding cooperation with UHL and will expand their services in the upcoming years.
Managing Partner of Ocean7 Jesper Henriksen adds: “The Middle East region is important to Ocean7 and the Dubai office with an experienced capacity as Mr. Anup Antony follows nicely Ocean7’s strategy of strengthening the personal relations to our business partners regionally.” Ocean7’s CEO Stefan Petersen affirms: “We are pleased to expand our successful cooperation with UHL along with local partners and the concept has proven that jointly we can enhance our ability of offering a wider and specialized scope to our close customers”.
