ISS-Tositti, the joint venture formed at the beginning of 2005 between the world’s largest independent marine services organisation, Inchcape Shipping Services (ISS), and Venice-based Tositti & C., is teaming up in a new strategic partnership with the Koper-based port agency, Navigo Logistika. After many years of cooperation in various segments of the shipping industry, the companies will form a new entity called ISS-Navigo and advance their ambitious expansion plans in the East Adriatic.
The new partnership is an important milestone in the development of ISS-Tositti, which already has a growing presence in the Slovenian and East Adriatic markets, and it also develops Koper as a key gateway port for Central Europe throughout the ISS customer base.
Navigo Logistika provides comprehensive agency service in Slovenian, Croatian and Montenegro ports. These port agency services are not just port based, but available wherever customers need them. Its diversified customer base includes clients across the oil, yacht, container and bulk commodity sectors as well as serving naval, government and inter-governmental clients. Additionally, Navigo provides landside commercial and logistics, transit, offshore support and other associated marine services.
Stefano Tositti, Managing Director, ISS-Tositti, said: “This new partnership will combine matchless professionalism, unrivalled market knowledge and completely open-minded thinking. Through mastery of the latest operating systems and a proactive approach to our clients’ business needs, we will offer a unique shipping service solution, specifically tailored for all kind of cargoes.”
Adds Ali Al Dilaimi, Managing Director, ISS Navigo: “We are excited about expanding the business with ISS-Tositti to offer new locations within the East Adriatic region and with the most up-to-date market intelligence with leading ship owners, operators, traders and co-brokers through the world, we can be sure to provide the most appropriate services at the right time and place.”
