Santiago, Chile

The Western Bulk Chartering Santiago office was opened in 2006. However, the Chile operation was initiated back in 1982, with an operational office in Concepción Bay for the forestry services.

Being one of the core areas since inception, Western Bulk Chartering’s Chile operations have built strong relationships with several major Chilean industrial companies. In addition to the traditionally strong forestry segment, operations here include transportation of grains, mineral products, and iron ore.

Geographically, with the time differences to Europe, Australia, and the Far East, the Santiago and Seattle offices nicely complement our offices in Oslo and Singapore to enable a 24-hour accessibility to Western Bulk Chartering around the world.

Email and IT-related Fraud Alert

There is an increasing risk of attempted fraud and other security threats via email. In particular, Western Bulk has noticed an increase of fraudulent requests to change bank account details of suppliers/creditors, in an attempt to redirect payments to criminals and not to the intended recipient. We encourage everyone to be vigilant and learn to detect fraudulent email instructions - seemingly legitimate emails may contain fraudulent information, this is not just a cybersecurity matter.

As a result, Western Bulk will treat any notice of bank account changes as suspicious. Urgent pressure to effect payment as soon as possible without verification of the changes will also be treated as suspicious.

Please note that Western Bulk would not inform of changes to bank account details by email notice alone. In the unlikely event that we need to change a beneficiary name or our other bank account details, we would personally contact our supplier or customer in order to personally verify any change in details.

Similarly, we ask that all our suppliers and creditors:

1. first notify us in writing and
2. personally verify any change in bank details or change in beneficiary in any payment advice to Western Bulk.

In summary, notices of bank account changes will require voice confirmation from your Western Bulk contact, either by telephone or face to face, before payment can be authorised so please make sure to notify any changes in good time.
