Jumbo moves to connect directly with clients in Canada

As the world is changing, so too is the shipping industry. Major trends such as globalisation have reshaped the industry and continue to present challenges and opportunities for us every day. This dynamic environment creates a gripping work setting where new ways of doing business, such as EPC contracts, making a profit and distinguishing yourself from the competition are required.

We see that in the Canadian market, our clients are increasingly requesting direct contact with Jumbo. We have observed that this way of conducting business can optimise operations and increase efficiency, but more importantly, by engaging directly with our clients we can stay relevant, keep connected and be on top of the changing demands.

New way forward

Based on this need to be closer to the market and to our clients in Canada, Jumbo has decided to discontinue our exclusive agency agreement with PTT.

“Jumbo has worked with PTT for over 30 years and we are very grateful to Roger Dudley and in turn his son Andrew, for their professional agency assistance over the years. We hope to continue to work with PTT on a case by case basis in the future.”
Laurens Govers, Commercial Manager, Jumbo Shipping

New Business

All enquires for the Canadian and USA great lakes areas should now come via Rene Nijhuis at our head office in the Netherlands. Rene has been working with Jumbo for more than 13 years and already manages and oversees the markets of North and South America.
Rene says “I enjoy dealing directly with the client. It helps me to understand their needs and requirements, they get to know me and it just works.”

With suitable ships and experienced teams, Jumbo continues with our strong presence and service in Canada and the great lakes.
