Slavenburg & Huyser brings French shipping company Delmas back to Amsterdam

Amsterdam, 11 September 2011 - On Saturday 10 September United Stevedores Amsterdam (USA) welcomed back the first vessel of the specialised West African shipping company Delmas, represented in the Netherlands by Slavenburg & Huyser. The ConRo vessel Rosa Delmas carried cocoa beans for transportation to storage warehouses in the region via the Ter Haak terminal.

This is not the first time that Ter Haak and Delmas have worked together. The French shipping company’s network included direct calls to Amsterdam for more than a decade and these only stopped when Delmas decided to reduce the number of line services between Northern Europe and West Africa and limit rotation. The Dutch agency activities were centralised in Rotterdam, and the Delmas office, located in the head office of the Ter Haak Group, closed in January this year. Slavenburg & Huyser has been acting as the Dutch agent for Delmas since July 2011.

“Delmas has always been satisfied with the cooperation with the Ter Haak Group," says Leo Poot, Director of Slavenburg & Huyser. “And we are delighted with these recent developments. Nevertheless, the cargo offer remains the decisive factor. For the time being, vessels will call at Amsterdam on an ad hoc basis. As soon as cargo increases, we hope to re-introduce Amsterdam to the regular shipping timetable."
