Broker Westshore says that following its success in Rio de Janeiro with the opening of Westshore Do Brasil in 2010 it has opened an office in St John's Newfoundland, in order to assist with ship brokerage projects in the North Atlantic and Arctic areas.
"Our connections to offshore owners with arctic capable tonnage are a good match for the current trends in the Canadian oshore market. We will provide operators with a solid source of tonnage from the global market," said the comapny.
"Through the opening of this office we intend to build our local knowledge of the operators and owners in the region, and develop strong relationships with the players in the industry."
