China State Shipbuilding Corporation (CSSC) has launched CSSC Marine Service Co by opening a new logistics centre in Shanghai’s Yangshang free trade zone.

The new business is intended to facilitate lifecycle services and flexible solutions to the entire CSSC product portfolio. The 9,000sq m logistics centre – which can accommodate more than 20,000 kinds of original small parts including fuel injection equipment, piston rings, pipes, flaps and valves, as well as large parts such as cylinder liners, covers and piston crowns - is the first step to enable quicker responses to customer needs.

Andrew Stump, president, CSSC Marine Service Co, said: “In the future CSSC Service will manage parts, field service and warranty for all CSSC manufactured products. There will be a particularly strong focus on low-speed main engine and medium-speed auxiliary engines from brands manufactured by CSSC. Our logistics centre will act as the hub for our global distribution network with the aim of being capable and efficient in the delivery of key engine components on a global scale.”

The company said that plans for the expansion of the current service centres in Hamburg, Athens, Singapore, Houston and Dubai will give it a network of six strategic service hubs and 28 service stations worldwide by 2020.

The third-party operated facility in Yangshang includes quality assurance monitoring and a state-of-the-art warehouse management system with a light identification system that will enable speedy picking, packing and delivery of parts.

CSSC manufactures marine engine and turbocharger products under license for several brands - including MAN PrimeServ and ABB - and since 2015 owns two-stroke engine developer WinGD.

Look out for an interview with Andrew Stump in the September issue of The Motorship.
