Worldwide shipments: from watermaker to computer screen
Royal Huisman’s projects are luxury sailing yachts with an average length of over 30 metres. All kinds of items go on board: from watermakers to refrigerators and a complete set of household goods. During the new construction period as well as servicing or refitting, (refurbishing existing yachts) shipments are sent all over the world.
Ruben Bakker (Purchasing, Royal Huisman): “For example, during the new construction phase we send goods for processes such as polishing or gilding. This type of parcel shipments was how our relationship with TFF began, and it suited us well. We then deployed an employee of theirs to receive a computer screen at a Japanese airport and deliver it somewhere else in the world. In addition to our parcel shipments, TFF now arranges 80% of our airfreight shipments worldwide.”
TFF has the knowledge and experience to provide the necessary solutions
“Price, quality and responsiveness in line with the market are extremely important to us when choosing the right logistics partner. We strive to bring everything together with one partner as much as possible. A challenge, because we serve multiple customers with different wishes. In TFF’s shipping portal we can easily compare carriers; all you have to do is enter a post code and the dimensions of your parcel. We have consciously chosen to receive the service from TFF. The team provides us with solutions where necessary; it knows a lot about the world of logistics and has a great deal of experience.” We stay in regular contact to keep each other on the ball and/or to implement improvements.”
