United Heavy Lift (UHL) and Ocean7 Projects have opened a joint agency office in Dubai to extend their presence in the Middle East and India. This is an important region for the partnership as it is in the middle of the usual trade lane from Europe to Asia and vice versa.
The office will focus on chartering and will be an addition to UHL agencies Lexicon Overseas in India and Electra Shipping Services in Dubai. The expansion of the UHL chartering network goes hand in hand with the growing United Engineering Solutions’ agency of maritime engineers, also located in India.
This is the third joint branch office opened by UHL and Ocean7; in 2019, the carriers established presences in Bergen (Norway) and Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia). The group also has sub-branches in Beijing (China) and Tokyo (Japan).
