Growing business between Wilhelmsen Ships Service and Wan Hai line.
Wilhelmsen Ships Service in Taiwan has landed important contracts with Wan Hai line, despite stiff competition from other suppliers. This is a good example of a long term relationship developing confidence in our ability to deliver on our promises. Wilhelmsen Ships Service started supplying gases to 31 Wan Hai Line vessels in 2006. In 2008, the company received orders for chemical supply, for a couple of the vessels. However, after a year of good cooperation and communication the company were granted a one year contract for chemical supply for the whole fleet and 31 vessels gas supply.
At the end of 2009, the contract was again put up for tender. Wan Hai saw several advantages in staying with Wilhelmsen Ships Service, because of good communications at a management level, and the company"s strong technical background, with worldwide logistics support. Wilhelmsen Ships Service has now signed a two year contract to supply gases to 31 vessels, and chemicals to the whole fleet (61 vessels).
