Grimaldi Shanghai inaugurated its offices

The Italian shipping group strengthens its presence in China

Naples/Shanghai, 23 April 2024: On 18 April, Grimaldi Shipping Agency Shanghai – the Grimaldi Group's agency in China – inaugurated its new offices. In attendance at the event were Group Managing Director Diego Pacella, Amelia Grimaldi and Euromed & Far East/Europe Line Manager Luigi Pacella Grimaldi.

The new Grimaldi Shanghai offices are located in Sinar Mas Plaza, the tallest skyscraper in the Old City, overlooking the Bund and Pudong, which are among the symbols of the Chinese economic capital.

The Agency, which currently has a team of 15 people directed by General Manager Francesco Zhou, was established last year with the aim of best assisting the Grimaldi Group's customers. It represents the Italian group in China, particularly taking care of relations with local vehicle manufacturers.

In fact, in response to a growing demand for transport from the main vehicle manufacturers, since 2022 the Italian shipping group has deployed its modern ships on regular connections to and from the Far East.

The Group currently connects China to the Mediterranean, Northern Europe and West Africa with regular calls in the ports of Shanghai and Tianjin, while also serving those of Yantai, Lianyungang and Xiamen.
