CRS has established an office in Istanbul to provide more efficient service in Turkey and to expand its services to the surrounding area. New CRS office is located in Nidakule Tower in Goztepe, in proximity to Istanbul and Yalova shipyards and Kumkapi anchorage area where many management companies have their offices. Mr Ali Ozen, who has more than 15 years of experience in the Turkish maritime industry, 10 thereof being as a Classification Surveyor, is appointed as a Head of Office starting from January 2023. Currently, CRS works with three Ship Management Companies in Turkiye: Efe Chartering, Imza Shipping and New Moon Shipping. These companies have a total of 22 ships under their management as of date, and there are six in CRS class. We will do our best to justify their trust and to have more vessels in the Turkish management fleet.
