DHL Supply chain has signed a five year contract to provide logistics services for Sunseeker International.
DHL will manage all in-bound freight movements, as well as goods receiving, stores, kitting, shipyard materials handling, and the line-feed of production.
80 Sunseeker employees will transfer to DHL under TUPE regulations, and DHL will help the luxury yacht seller improve its manufacturing standards for its next generation motor yachts.
Negotiations for the partnership began in November when the two companies discussed moving 80 of Sunseeker’s staff to DHL’s warehouse.
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.”
