United Heavy Lift welcomes Ocean7 Projects (Ocean7) as a partner in the UHL Americas, Inc. branch office in Houston, Texas. Both UHL and Ocean7 specialize in the transportation of heavy lift, project and general cargo.
UHL’s Houston office has already started operations in November 2020 and is managed by Rene Pedersen who joined United Heavy Lift in 2020 with nearly 18 years of experience in the multi-purpose heavy lift shipping industry. Eileen Wang also joined UHL Americas in 2020 as Business Development Executive. Eileen is highly regarded by customers in Houston and has more than 25 years of experience, having successfully represented major MPP carriers in the United States before.
With Ocean7 joining the Houston branch, the office is renamed United O7 Americas as of 01 March 2022. The Houston office is the fifth joint UHL and Ocean7 office. UHL and Ocean7 joined forces in 2019 and have since opened offices in Dubai and Kuala Lumpur (with subdivisions in Beijing and Tokyo) under the United Ocean7 brand (UO7).
“Houston has always been a major shipping hub and is considered the energy capital of the world. By joining forces, we will strengthen our presence in this market and continue to serve the world’s largest EPC contractors, oil and gas companies, and project forwarders. I am very pleased to keep working with my long-time colleagues Eileen Wang and Rene Petersen. They both have a wealth of experience and have built close relationships with our US customers over the years,” said Lars Bonnesen, Managing Director of United Heavy Lift.
