Port2Port is continuing its expansion within the maritime security and risk management services sector and the UK-based company says Mr Scheepers’ experience and knowledge of the shipping, offshore and oil trading Industries will assist significantly at this critical stage of growth.
Andrew Varney, Managing Director of Port2Port said: “This is fantastic news for P2P, which I very much hope will enable a much wider offering to our current and potential shipping industry clients along with our emerging portfolio of offshore customers. His appointment will serve to both strengthen and complement the existing expertise on our Board.”
Mr Scheepers has worked extensively in the global shipping arena. Beginning with TransPetrol Services, a well-known ship owner, he has also worked with two of the world’s largest commodity traders, Trafigura and Arcadia Petroleum, heading up their shipping departments.
Mr Scheepers said: “I am looking forward to supporting Port2Port in further developing business in the maritime and offshore sectors, using my network, knowledge and experience to support this rapidly expanding spectrum of global risk management service.”
The Port2Port Group has now successfully delivered well in excess of 1,000 armed transits in the Eastern HRA and is also one of very few companies able to provide effective, legally compliant services in the Gulf of Guinea as well as maritime training courses in the UK and India.
