DHL Supply Chain is to provide logistics services to Poole based super yacht builders Sunseeker International under a five year contract.
All inbound freight movements, goods receiving, stores, kitting, shipyard materials handling, and the line-feed of production are to be handled by DHL under the deal.
The Sunseeker contract also has 80 of its employees move over to DHL under TUPE regulations. This is to help the yacht builders improve its manufacturing standards for the next generation of its motor vessels.
The negotiations for the deal began in November. Michael Straughan, chief operating officer at Sunseeker International said: “we have been looking to move our logistics operation to even greater levels of performance and DHL were the natural choice help us achieve this.”
