Klaveness have announced the official opening of their Dubai office, which is a branch office of Klaveness Asia. Klaveness has been active in the region for several years and has a rich connection with the area. A presence in the region with a full-fledged office has been on the cards for a while and the growth in activity in the recent years on the dry bulk side has made the decision more crucial.

In addition the company has a unique concept for combination carriers and provides container feeder vessels to various operators.
The company is family owned with its main office in Oslo, Norway. Klaveness has approximately 165 employees on shore and 650 at sea, altogether representing some 20 nationalities. The company serves the shipping industry all over the world from offices in Oslo, Singapore, Shanghai, Manila, Rio de Janeiro, Constanta and now, Dubai.
