FORMER OWNERS OF NORASIA SET UP NEW SHIPPING LINE
Following the sale of Norasia to Compania Sud Americana de Vapores, the former owners of the company have set up a new shipping line, ECS Express Container Service AG.
ECS Express Container Service, based in Stuttgart, Germany, is planning to launch an express shuttle service between Hong Kong and Trieste. It will also look at providing other “express” liner services.
Werner Pinnow, a former head of Hapag-Lloyd (America) Inc. and previously general manager of the port of Rostock in Germany, has been named managing director of ECS Express Container Service AG.
Contact details for the company are posted on ComPairData, the global shipping database, at www.compairdata.com, under “carrier profiles.”
