HOUSTON (JAN. 24, 2018) – Intermarine, LLC, a global leader in the transport of project, breakbulk and heavylift cargo, has named Alejandro Pla as Country Manager – Mexico. He will be based in Mexico, City. Pla has more than 24 years of experience in a variety of roles in shipping and logistics.
Most recently, he served as Chartering Manager for Representaciones Maritimas S.A. agency in Mexico City where he oversaw commercial and chartering activity for the group and their clients.
In his role with Intermarine, Pla will match worldwide cargo opportunities with the Company’s regional chartering desks and work closely with line management on established routes.
