Athens’ shipping carried on where it left off when up to 60 of Vantage Shipping Lines’ shipping partners attended a post-Posidonia party in an historic warehouse located in the old industrial ship repair zone of Retsina in Piraeus.

Vantage held the evening to recognise and thank the shipping services partners it has worked closely with over the years. Guests comprised principally of executives of the shipping support companies that make Piraeus the successful ship management centre that it is today.

Costas Savvides, General Manager of Vantage, said: “It is important to maintain the highest levels of relationship with whoever you are working with at whatever level at all times. Especially if you need something done with your ship at 2am in the morning.”

Retsina is the historic home of many of the old Greek workshops and repair shops that have existed for over 200 years.

Vantage owns and operates handy and handymax bulk carrier vessels. It has recently opened a branch office in London in addition to its Athens-based office.
