Partnership leads the way
The first steps towards success in Egypt were taken by Weilbach, Leth Agencies and Concord Shipping Agency in 2015 when the companies met on a trade exhibition in the Danish capital of Copenhagen.
“Establishing a partnership was the key to realizing the potential of the Egyptian market. Leth Agencies already had a partner in Egypt, which is necessary to set up a company, and they had direct contact with ships passing through Suez every day. On our side we had the experience and setup that was needed to offer 100 percent printing on demand from the beginning,” explains Torben Frerks.
Jacob Guldager, CEO, Leth Agencies, continues:
“As the second largest agent in the area, we have several ships passing through the Suez Canal every day. Therefore, we know the shipowners and their need for having updated charts on board to be compliant at any time. By offering printing on demand, we help them to have the right charts when e.g. the route changes or updates are made.”
