Wisdom Marine and Synergy form bulk carrier joint venture Wisdom Synergy Ship Management (WSSM)


Wisdom Marine Group and Synergy Group last week announced their new joint venture, Wisdom Synergy Ship Management (WSSM), intended to embody ‘operational excellence and adherence to the highest industry standards’.

The move cements the collaborative relationship between Synergy Group and the Wisdom Marine Group – established in 1999 by shipping magnate James Lan and is listed on the London and Taiwan Stock Exchange. It follows Wisdom’s decision last year to entrust Synergy Group with providing management services for a portion of its fleet.

Headquartered in Singapore and with key operational centres in Taiwan and India, WSSM is poised to redefine technical management of Wisdom’s diverse fleet.

James Lan (pictured, centre left) expressed his complete confidence in the venture, saying: “With WSSM, we embark on a transformative journey, leveraging Synergy’s expertise to enhance our fleet’s operational safety and efficiency, underscoring our commitment to sustainable practices and the well-being of our crew.”

Capt. Rajesh Unni (centre right), Founder and Executive Chairman of Synergy Marine Group, observed: “Joining forces with Wisdom Marine Group, a leader in global shipping, is an honour. This strategic partnership is built on a strong foundation of mutual respect and common goals. We are committed to making a meaningful impact in the industry.”
