Peters & May, a world leader in the provision of marine logistics, continues to expand its global network and is opening a regional sales office in Hong Kong, effective 4th October 2010. The strategic decision to open Peters & May Hong Kong is a result of the growth of boat builders, dealers and individual boat owners moving boats with Peters & May to Asia over the last three years.
Angus Bruce Jones, Managing Director of Peters & May comments, "The Hong Kong office is situated in a key location to support our imports and exports to and from Asia. We also benefit from several existing agents in the local and surrounding area with representation in Hong Kong, Singapore and Taiwan, and continue to research further opportunities."
Peters & May Hong Kong will be headed up by Thibaut de Montvalon, who was formerly Managing Director of Peters & May France. Thibaut has been working closely with Peters & May clients and agents in Asia during recent months, bringing his extensive experience handling yacht shipments and the shipping process. His previous roles include Director of Logistics at Tui Marine, which is the holding group for The Moorings and Sunsail brands.
Thibaut de Montvalon will also be working together with the new Managing Director of Peters & May France, Gregory Salaun, to ensure a smooth handover during the coming months. Gregory has worked with Peters & May France since early 2010 and has a wealth of experience in the logistics sector. He was previously one of CMA-CGM’s break-bulk specialists and handled all yachts for Peters & May when shipped with CMA-CGM.
Complementing the work of the Hong Kong office, earlier this year, Peters & May appointed Real Link Logistics as its exclusive agent for Hong Kong. This followed last year’s appointments of 3L Leemark Logistics in Taiwan and LAP Marine in Singapore, who are responsible for Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand. They each work closely with the global network of Peters & May offices and agents prior to and during shipping as well as discharge.
