Broking giant Simpson Spence Young (SSY) has revealed that its new Genoa office will be staffed with a team from its rival Lightship Chartering.

Seven staff from Lightship will join the dry cargo-focused office when it opens on 1 September.

The new hub will be managed by Luca Domenico Capitanio and Luca Sambataro, who will make up the panamax team with Paolo Bovenga.
