At the same time, we will gain access to Marlow’ worldwide network of manning agencies and other service providing entities,” stated General Manager, Clearwater Ship Management, Wessel van Leeuwen. “We are convinced that this extended cooperation will be for the benefit of both companies and in the end, our clients,” he added.
