Logistics for luxury boats
DHL Supply Chain has signed a new five-year contract to provide logistics services to Sunseeker International, the Poole (UK)-based luxury yacht manufacturer, at a ceremony at the Düsseldorf Boat show.
Working in close cooperation with its partner, DHL will manage all in-bound freight movements, as well as goods receiving, stores, kitting, shipyard material movements and the line-feed of production parts.
In addition, DHL will implement a programme of transformational improvements and accelerated digitalisation to support the company’s future growth plans.
Under the transformation programme, around 80 Sunseeker colleagues will transfer to DHL under TUPE regulations, as the logistics group helps Sunseeker adapt its operations to achieve manufacturing excellence for its next generation of motor yachts. (mw)
