SeaLead has announced the opening of a new office in Mumbai, India, marking a strategic step in its attempt to strengthen its presence in South Asia.
This move is anticipated to ensure improved services and stronger support for its customers in the region.
The Mumbai office is expected to serve as a vital hub in SeaLead’s operations, meeting the growing needs of local customers with a range of solutions.
Led by Shiva Mahadevan, Managing Director for South Asia and the Middle East, SeaLead, the new office will reportedly include a range of functions to support further growth.
Mahadevan: “The Mumbai office demonstrates our commitment to delivering top-quality services to our South Asia customers.
“It will enable us to further develop and optimise our services to keep up with the industry’s evolving needs,” Mahadevan added.
Commenting on the new office, Henry Schmidl, SeaLead Managing Director, said: “The Mumbai office marks a crucial progression for SeaLead’s South Asia expansion.
“Our focus remains on delivering excellent shipping solutions, driving efficiency and value for our customers.
“This office allows us to further enhance our service delivery to meet the market’s requirements,” Schmidl added.
The Mumbai office is expected to augment SeaLead’s existing services and also present new opportunities for shippers in the region.
Currently, SeaLead operates two main services from the Western India region: WARM, connecting India’s key ports with Egypt, Turkey, and Saudi Arabia; and IDEA, which offers shipping solutions from key ports in India and the United Arab Emirates to East Africa.
Further expansion is expected in the near future, SeaLead reported in a statement.
