Blue Water will manage Holland America Group’s warehouse operations at its main distribution center in Florida, carrying out order fulfillment, distribution, storage, cross dock and live loads for dry, chilled, and frozen shipments plus deliveries for each cruise line.
Kurt Skov, chairman and owner of Blue Water Shipping, said, ‘Holland America Line was our first cruise client in 1999 and through close partnership, both of our companies grew during the next 15 years. It is partly due to our relationship with Holland America Line, that we decided to form a dedicated strategic business unit focusing on the cruise and marine logistics industry.’
The 170,000 sq ft warehouse facilities are located in Fort Lauderdale. Their broad mix of logistics solutions also includes crew mails, technical spare parts while running a full vendor-managed inventory setup.
Its global team is located in hubs worldwide, providing round-the-clock services to cruise ships.
