The America’s cup might seem a long way off but the preparation for competition is already underway. Specialist equipment is required to support the streamlined vessels and their crews through races and training.
We were contacted by one of our long term intermediaries and they advised that the custom-made containers that house all of the equipment and mobile living quarters including kitchen equipment were to be shipped imminently. Initially the request was for a single shipment cargo placement for the transit risk.
However, after a quick discussion and equally quick placing activity a far more practical 12 months stock throughput policy was placed which will include the upcoming planned activity.
Aside from a premium advantage this is administratively far more effective in avoiding multiple placements for each shipment, while also providing coverage while in storage.
