Holland America Group picks Blue Water for logistics

Blue Water will be managing the warehouse operations for Holland America Group’s main distribution center in Florida
A new partnership in the area of logistics will see Blue Water Shipping further support Holland America Group which includes Princess Cruises, Holland America Line, Seabourn and P&O Australia.

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.’
