Part of the Nippon Yusen Kabushiki Kaisha Group, one of the world’s leading transportation companies, NYK Line container services has appointed ISS to represent its New Zealand Singapore service (NZS) and North Asia-New Zealand (NZJ) service from July.
Under this new agency agreement, ISS Brisbane will handle the full liner agency function including sales, customer service, operations and accounting for NYK Line in Australia.
ISS will also support imports from the Far East and South East Asia with weekly sailings on both strings, as well as focus on northbound service volumes from Brisbane to South East Asia and beyond. NYK Line continues to operate vessels in both the NZS and NZJ services which call in New Zealand (following Australia) and support trans-Tasman cargo eastbound and westbound.
Danita McMurray, former NYK Sales Manager, has transitioned to lead the five person ISS NYK Liner Agency team in Brisbane bringing her experience and knowledge of NYK’s business and customers.
Said Eddie Filus, Executive Vice President, Liner at ISS: “The award of the NYK agency in Australia to Inchcape demonstrates our strength and capabilities in liner agency and in delivering a total solution to a long established principal in a developed market.
“We’re very pleased to have this opportunity to represent NYK in Australia and to work to continue and develop its name and reputation in the country. As well as being a partner in NYK’s enterprise, we now look forward to not just meeting, but exceeding our principal’s expectations.”
