Opening of office in Houston, United States

Cory Brothers, an international provider of ship agency, freight forwarding and logistics services around the world, is pleased to announce that it has opened a new Ships Agency and Logistics Office in Houston, USA.

The Houston office will establish a regional centre in the USA for Cory Brothers and allow for greater global coverage. Cory Brothers already has offices in Europe, Gibraltar, South America and Singapore and are represented through their agency partners throughout the globe.

Julian Howard will be responsible for the new office in the United States. The new Houston office will enable Cory Brothers to operate a more efficient business in the USA and will also strengthen their position when competing for new mandates. The addition of the US gulf office will enable Cory Brothers to continue to improve the level of service it offers clients as it will be able to drive greater cost efficiencies on a global scale.

Kevin Gorman, Managing Director of Braemar’s Agency and Logistics Division, commented: “This is a natural expansion to complement our existing operations in Singapore, the Far East, Europe and South America. This will enable us to enhance further our global coverage and service for existing and future customers. It makes sense to be situated in the middle of the biggest petrochemical complex in the US, where we can utilise our expertise and bring added value in Ships Agency and Logistics.”
