A Single Vessel Operations Agent
The expansion of the Great Lakes Vessel Operations Network closes a gap in the eastern region of the Great Lakes by creating a continuous network of vessel operating offices servicing Lake Ontario and the Welland Canal ports, providing the customers of World Shipping, Inc. with the opportunity to use a single agent, while transiting beyond the St. Lawrence Seaway for all Great Lakes ports on both the U.S. and Canadian sides.

Canadian Leadership
The Canadian Great Lakes Vessel Operations Network will be managed by Canadian J.F. Walker. Walker will serve as General Manager at the Vessel Operations Office in Hamilton, Ontario.

“J.F. brings a wealth of experience stemming from 14 years in the vessel husbandry industry. His knowledge and reputation has earned widespread industry respect—we are extremely pleased to have him as a part of our team,” said Fred Hunger, Chief Executive Officer, World Shipping, Inc.
