Coral Springs, FL, May 14, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Josh Morales, CEO of OSI recently stated that “Ocean Star International’s presence in Australia will greatly enhance the way we do business. OSI is always looking for better ways to serve our customers globally. Our Australia office is one more step in making that happen.” Performing over 7,000 individual shipments a year, OSI is eager to take their global business to a new level.
In the not so distant past, the future of the coastal shipping industry in Australia was in question. According to a report put out by the Parliament of the Commonwealth of Australia, “The Australian coastal shipping industry has been in decline for some time. In 2005/06, the Australian registered trading fleet consisted of 46 vessels. In 1996, that number stood at 75. Increasingly, foreign vessels have been employed to carry goods around the Australian coast…”
“We’ve recently put an emphasis on exports from Australia, imports to Australia, as well as shipping along the Australian coastline,” Morales explains. “We couldn’t be happier about the events leading up to the opening of our Australia offices.”
Ocean Star International is proud to share its over 30 years of shipping expertise with foreign countries such as Australia. OSI strives to build new worldwide relationships through its ever-expanding presence in the shipping industry. “OSI is thrilled to be expanding our global presence with our new Australia office. We look forward to serving our global customers more efficiently and effectively,” says Morales.
