2014 on a high note
Sammy Reynaert, Safmarine’s Global Key Account Owner for Hellmann, said: “Safmarine’s recognition as a ‘top three global carrier’ is particularly significant considering Safmarine does not have a global coverage, which is one of the parameters for the award. “Furthermore, even though Safmarine is not active in the East-West trades – which happen to be Hellmann’s biggest and fastest growing trades – our consistent, excellent delivery in the other trades in which we are active, combined with the excellent relationships we have with Hellmann at country and regional level, made it possible for us to retain our status as a key partner to Hellmann and be recognised as one of their top three carriers globally.” Hellmann’s Vice President Seafreight OMEA (Oceania, Middle East, Africa), Oliver Nicolaysen, added: “This is a very good result which underlines a steady and ongoing partnership between Safmarine and Hellmann Worldwide Logistics. Together, we have managed to move forward and steer, jointly, through rough economic waters.
