Premier Shipping and Packing Ltd, PSP, has come onboard as the Official Logistics Partner for the Clipper 09-10 Round the World Yacht Race. PSP will provide logistical support for the seventh edition of the race which starts from the Humber on 13 September.
Frank Dixie, Managing Director says:
“Over the last few years we have been raising our profile in the marine sector which has recently culminated in a three-year title sponsorship of the PSP Southampton Boat Show. Our partnership with the Clipper Race will continue to increase our international exposure especially in Asia where we have just launched a joint venture with our long-term partners Helka. As the Clipper fleet races around the world we look forward to activating our sponsorship in a number of new territories and forging new distribution channels.”
PSP will provide and manage the freight of two containers, which ‘leap frog’ each other, to ensure that the race is provisioned at each stopover during the course of the ten month event. The containers will be fitted out as mobile workshops and filled with essential spares to maintain the yachts at each stopover.
Clipper Race Chairman, Sir Robin Knox-Johnston:
“To have the support of such a well known and highly experienced company like PSP is wonderful news and I’m delighted to welcome them onboard as our Official Logistics Partner. What goes on behind the scenes in organising an event such as ours is often overlooked but plays a vital role to ensure the race is a success.”
