Gerald Price commented “We are all extremely excited to be starting the Sevenstar UK office and to be able to offer liner services to Sevenstar’s clients globally. The Sevenstar “product” is now very well established internationally, and we all feel the time is right for it to look to develop the UK market under its own name, as part of its global expansion, and to provide both charter and liner shipping services as clients look for competitive and turnkey solutions”.
This new UK office follows the recent opening of offices in both Turkey and Australia. In the near future there will be further developments in other worldwide boating markets such as the rapidly expanding economies in Asia and South America.
