Office Brazil

An exciting new venture is about to unfold in Brazil. On March 1st 2021, Intermarine
Brazil and SAL Heavy Lift Brazil will open their doors in the great South American
country. By establishing a joint office, the two heavy lift shipping & logistics compa-
nies are set to strengthen their operations in South America and expand their activi-
ties within the project cargo and breakbulk sectors.

Intermarine and SAL Heavy Lift are ready to dance the samba. The two sister companies are
very pleased to announce their establishment of a new joint strategic sales office in the im-
portant cargo hub of Brazil.

Staffed by seasoned commercial and chartering personnel, the new office will focus on ser-
vicing the needs of worldwide customers, supporting Intermarine’s Americas Liner Service
and the heavy lift shipping activities of SAL Heavy Lift.

Svend Andersen, CEO Intermarine says: “I have done business in Brazil for more than 30
years and know the great importance of the country on the global heavy lift and break bulk
scene. With our new joint establishment, we will offer our customers a local access point to a
truly unique service with the combination of SAL’s global project and semi-liner services and
Intermarine’s very strong Americas liner service and breakbulk business. I look forward to
seeing our activities grow in Brazil with this new initiative in São Paulo”.

The office will be headed by Natalie Jones, a veteran in the Brazilian breakbulk and project
cargo sector, where she has worked for leading carriers, including Intermarine, for more than
25 years. With a team of 5, she will take the lead in building up the new South American
business base.

Natalie Jones, General Manager, SAL / Intermarine Brazil, states; “Brazil holds plenty of op-
portunities – especially within the power, energy and infrastructure arenas. With the com-
bined services of Intermarine and SAL, our team has a very strong product to market, and I
look forward to growing both business and brands together with the rest of the international
teams. And it feels good to be back to the great outfit where I first began my career!”
Both Intermarine and SAL have considered, for quite some time, expanding its commitment
to the Brazilian market as a natural steppingstone to strengthening their presence throughout
the Americas.

Jens Baumgarten, Managing Director & Head of Chartering, SAL Heavy Lift, adds; “Histori-
cally, Brazil has provided plenty of attractive prospects, but our setup has lacked a base and
the right resources. With our new office in São Paulo, I am confident that we can establish
SAL as a household name in Brazil. I look forward to engage on this journey together with
Natalie, the Brazil team and Intermarine.”

The office will target the growth taking place in the industrial, renewables, offshore oil and
gas and power sectors in Brazil and South America in general together with the Intermarine
and SAL teams in Houston and New Orleans, USA and in Hamburg, Germany.

Richard Seeg, President Intermarine, concludes; “Intermarine’s long legacy in Brazil forms
the cornerstone of our activities in the region. With our new setup I am confident that we will
see our break bulk activities grow together with the business activities of SAL.”
