Jorge’s career in shipping spans a lifetime. He started, at a young age, working as an office boy for a company representing Shipowners in Argentina.

In 2003, Jorge opened B&G Maritime in Buenos Aires, and aligned himself with a team of eager and hard working professionals. In 2008, B&G Maritime expanded, opening its offices in the Port of San Lorenzo. It was here that Jorge formed a group ship operators, with the focus on having them attending to vessel operations personally, in Upriver ports + various others throughout Argentina + Uruguay.
Throughout the nearly 20 years, B&G has been dedicated to providing excellent service to all of its clientele and continues with the same values and work ethic today.
Furthermore and throughout these 20 years, Jorge traveled extensively, meeting new and old clients, in order to increase the volume of work at B&G and its presence in the global shipping market.
