Premier Shipping & Packing Limited (PSP) has been appointed Official Logistics Partner for the renowned Clipper Round the World Yacht Race for the second year running. As one of the leading logistics and freight forwarding companies in the UK, it will provide support for the entire Clipper 11-12 Race, which starts from the UK in August.
PSP, which provides similar services for many other racing teams, will take charge of moving Clipper’s containers 40,000 miles around the globe as competitors battle it out for victory on the water.
The task is an important one as the containers are filled with vital equipment, required for maintenance due to the gruelling nature of the eleven month race.
Frank Dixie, Managing Director of PSP, said,
“Our association with Clipper in the 09-10 race saw great returns for our business as it thrust our name into sailing fraternities across the world. We’re therefore over the moon that, after doing such a successful job last time, we have been chosen yet again to provide logistics for the world-famous race. It will bring many more opportunities for PSP to further increase its profile in the marine industry.”
Clipper Race Chairman, Sir Robin Knox-Johnston, added,
“I don’t think people appreciate just how vital it is to have a good reliable shipping company when running an international event like the Clipper Race. It is therefore excellent news that PSP will once again be the Official Logistics Partner for Clipper and we welcome them back on board.”
