Hong Kong: Crowley Maritime from the US is taking over Accord Ship Management. Accord, which is dual headquartered in Hong Kong and Mumbai, will be renamed Crowley Accord.

Technical and crew management company Accord Ship Management has been in existence since 1992. Accord currently manages over 20 vessels, with offices in Hong Kong, in Mumbai and Goa, and in the Netherlands.

Nepa Projects of Hong Kong has been involved with the management of the company since 2010.

Accord's managing director Sanjay Shesh said, "Crowley stepping into the management of Accord is a great step forward for Accord. The spotless image and pure charisma of Crowley will propel Accord to a higher plane where economical solutions will be available to our existing and new clients with greater brand value and higher standards of committed service."  [08/04/14]
