Based at the Port of Fujairah and taking advantage of the port’s strategically important location near the Strait of Hormuz, FNS is targeting greater market share in the region by becoming the first ‘one-stop-shop’ maritime services company and further adding to its portfolio of services. The company has also brought in a new management team, invested in new physical assets within the port, and launched a new technology platform.
Established in 1982, and part of the extensive Fujairah National Group,
FNS claims to be the only maritime services company in the Gulf Region who can offer a fully holistic range of services to shipping clients. The Port of Fujairah is the only multi-purpose port on the eastern seaboard of the United Arab Emirates and has unique access to international east – west shipping routes.
Previously known as Fujairah National Shipping Agency, FNS, which also has offices in Dubai, has relaunched under the fresh leadership of its Chief Executive Officer, Sanjeev Sarin.
Prior to joining FNS, Sanjeev Sarin worked in a number of senior strategic roles, covering ship agency, ship management, clearing and forwarding, logistics and distribution, technical and crew management and commercial chartering.
With major new capital to be invested in FNS over a 12-month period, services now include agency, husbandry, ship management, repairs, maintenance, clearing, forwarding, offshore support, crew management, warehousing, and distribution. Based on new data analytic capabilities, the company is also launching new technology platforms which will help clients to optimise voyage management and supply chain efficiency.
FNS provides solutions to ship owners, charterers, managers and brokers and amongst its service bouquet offers bunkering, oil storage and ship repairs as well.
