essDOCS, the provider of shipping and trade eDocs solutions, has announced its expansion to the US with the opening of a regional Americas headquarters in Hoboken, New Jersey.

The US East Coast office is set to advance the company’s global eDoc adoption strategy and will act as a sales hub for expansion of the company’s cornerstone offering, CargoDocs.

“The opening of our new Americas headquarters marks another step in our commitment to provide regional support for our customers,” says Alexander Goulandris, essDOCS CEO.

“With the addition of the greater New York area to our existing locations in Singapore, Athens and London, we are better equipped to provide the 24/7 response required by the global shipping and trade industry.”

The office will be managed by essDOCS’ newly-appointed Marisa Martin, Americas vice-president. Martin began her career in the maritime industry in Valparaiso, Chile working with KPI Bridge Oil as a bunker broker and trader.
