Clarksons Dubai Celebrates 10th Anniversary

Welcoming over 500 guests, Clarksons Platou was delighted to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the establishment of Clarksons Dubai last week at a reception held overlooking the iconic Burj Al Arab in Dubai's Jumeirah Beach Hotel. 

In 2005, Clarksons, the world's leading shipping services group opened the office in order to fully service its growing and highly valued client base in the MEINA region.  Initially focussing purely on the dry cargo market, the Dubai team has grown from a staff of two to more than 60 employees.

Over the years we have worked in close partnership with our clients, developing long-standing relationships and as the local economies have diversified and clients' needs changed, Clarksons Platou's global network and unique product breadth has meant we can support them in new areas and shipping markets. Today, the business concentrates on dry cargo and  tanker chartering (both deep sea and specialised products),as well as offshore for the whole of the MEINA region,.

Commenting, Essam Bella, Managing Director, Clarksons Platou Dubai said:

"We are delighted to celebrate this important milestone with so many of our clients. The last 10 years have seen incredible growth for the Dubai team and we look forward to an exciting future ahead."

Commenting, Andi Case, Chief Executive of Clarkson said:

"Clarksons Platou Dubai is an important cornerstone to our operations and acts as the hub for The MEINA region. Best in class client service is at the heart of our strategy and offering clients unique local support but with access to the Group's product breadth and depth allows us to do that."
