Jardine Shipping Services, market leader in shipping agencies in the Asia Pacific region, announces that it has rebranded and will begin trading under the name S5 Asia effective 10/1/15. With the adoption of its new brand and logo, S5 Asia has simultaneously launched its redesigned website: http://www.S5asia.com.
Jardine Shipping Services was part of the Jardine Matheson Group. Founded in China in 1832 and headquartered in Hong Kong, Jardine Matheson is a multinational corporation with a portfolio of businesses focused primarily on Asia.
The rebranding to S5 Asia follows the acquisition of the shares of Jardine Shipping Services from Jardine Pacific by S5 North Europe on June 30th 2015. The rebranding strongly supports S5’s vision to create the leading ship services company in the world.
S5 Asia provides a comprehensive range of port agency and liner agency services, working out of 52 port offices that cover 200 ports in Asia. Both S5 North Europe and S5 Asia are shareholders of S5 Agency World, the fastest growing port agency organization in the world, offering their customers a wide scale of services with a second-to-none service.
