The new company, Wisdom Synergy Ship Management (WSSM), will be headquartered in Singapore and with key operational centres in Taiwan and India.

WSSM is said to herald a ‘new era’ in maritime operations for the Wisdom-owned dry bulk tonnage, prioritizing safety, operational efficiency and sustainable practices.

The initiative follows Wisdom’s decision last year to entrust Synergy Group with providing management services for a portion of its fleet, laying the groundwork for this partnership.

“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,” James Lan, Founder of Wisdom Marine, commented.

“Joining forces with Wisdom Marine Group … 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,” Rajesh Unni, Founder and Executive Chairman of Synergy Marine Group, said.

Over the past two years, the Taipei-based shipowner has been on an ordering spree which is part of the company’s fleet renewal and modernization strategy. The company has contracted Japanese and Chinese shipyards to build a fleet of new ships.
