DHL Supply Chain has signed a new five-year contract to provide logistics services to Sunseeker International Limited, the Poole-based luxury yacht manufacturer, at a ceremony at the Düsseldorf Boat show.
DHL will manage all in-bound freight movements, as well as goods receiving, stores, kitting, shipyard material movements and the line-feed of production parts.
Under the transformation programme, around 80 Sunseeker colleagues will transfer to DHL under TUPE (Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment)) regulations, as the logistics provider helps Sunseeker adapt its operations to achieve improved manufacturing for its next generation of motor yachts.
Mike Bristow, MD – Manufacturing Logistics, DHL Supply Chain UK & Ireland, added: “We’re delighted to be supporting Sunseeker as it embarks on the next stage in its exciting journey.”
