Wallem Group Leads Maritime Industry in Hong Kong
The Wallem Group is leading the way in Honk Kong for the maritime industry, winning a plethora of awards from peers, seafarers and clients.
The Shipping Company of the Year title was bestowed on Wallem by the International Seafarers Welfare and Assistance Network (ISWAN) for the Wallem Group’s crew welfare program in the Seafarer Welfare Awards.
ISWAN is backed by the ITF (International Transport Workers Federation), a heavy weight in the transport workers sector. Nominations for the Award are made by seafarers, endorsing Wallem as a leading employer for seafarers around the world.
The Award was announced on Monday 7 April 2014 at a ceremony hosted by the Director General of the International Labour Organisation, Mr Guy Ryder, at the ILO in Geneva.
Wallem Ship Management has received double the recognition from leading Japanese ship owner/operator client NYK Group, winning Car Carrier of the Year Awards for two vessels in management, and the Innovative Bunker and Idle time Saving (IBIS) Award for all NYK container vessels in Wallem’s management.
The shipping industry recently recognised Wallem with the Ship Manager of the Year Award at the annual Seatrade Asia awards ceremony in Singapore on 07 April. The Award recognises excellence in ship management, from crewing to technical and procurement services. Wallem delivers ship management services from the key maritime locations of Hong Kong, Singapore, Europe and North America.
The Hong Kong SAR has recently made commitments to the city’s maritime industry, including the Chief Executive CY Leung’s second policy address proposing a statutory maritime body and the Hong Kong Trade Development Council leading a delegation to the shipping event of the year, Posidonia, in Greece.
