QMSF’S SHEIKH HASSAN ANNOUNCES
SHIPPING DEAL WITH PETERS & MAY
· Peters & May USA appointed ‘official logistics provider’ to QMSF
DOHA (Qatar): His Excellency Sheikh Hassan bin Jabor Al-Thani, president of the Qatar Marine Sports Federation (QMSF), has announced that global shipping company Peters & May USA will become the Qatar offshore powerboat team’s exclusive shipping agent and ‘official logistics provider’ with immediate effect.
Announcing the news, Sheikh Hassan highlighted the importance of a reliable shipping agent, where equipment has to be transported to remote and sometimes obscure venues to meet strict racing calendar deadlines.
“We have a rigid programme and work on tight schedules,” said Sheikh Hassan. “We need a reliable source of transportation and an on-time delivery of race parts and equipment.
“Peters & May’s success in securing shipping dates and arrival times to QMSF events in Qatar, as well as the fact that we have used them on several occasions to export and import urgent racing parts, have given them the edge over other shipping agents to hold the responsibility to transport Qatar team equipment around the world,” added Sheikh Hassan.
“Working with shipping timetables and road transportation is not a small job and for them to take on the challenge of moving our racing equipment around the world is not a small task.”
David Holley, managing director of Peters & May USA, is relishing the challenge of working exclusively with the QMSF. “Peters & May USA have demonstrated a commitment to the needs of powerboat racers and teams around the world and is proud to be the ‘official logistics provider’ for a respected organisation like the Qatar Marine Sports Federation,” said Holley.
“Having earned the trust of leaders like Sheikh Hassan, we do our utmost to provide a service that enables racing organisations to focus on racing, leaving the transport and logistics to Peters & May USA.”
Peters & May’s UK parent company has been at the forefront of the global shipping industry for over 30 years. Chicago-based Peters & May USA have diversified and added smaller sports yachts, personal watercraft and a variety of racing teams to a broad customer base.
