Bespoke logistics provider Peters & May Group’s exceptional start to BOOT Dusseldorf 2017 mirrors the positive growth of the company.
The Peters & May boatshow season for 2017 has kicked off in great style at Dusseldorf, with the German office taking the helm of the new Peters & May stand in the superyacht hall (Hall 7a F22).
A Caribbean party ensued in fitting celebration of Antigua Sailing Weeks 50th anniversary and was a welcome wind down for the successful opening weekend of the show that saw the first booking confirmed. This great start combined with an overall increase in enquiries from both trade and private individuals added to the buoyant mood of the Dusseldorf BOOT and the expanding German office.
Luke Webster, Regional Manager for Germany, based in the Hamburg office, commented,
‘Dusseldorf BOOT 2017 marks our ninth year exhibiting and our third year with the German office. This year’s show has been exceptional! With a good balance of current and new clients coming to our stand in the superyacht hall.
He continued ‘The opportunity to meet face to face with them and work through shipping options in a relaxed and friendly environment has proved to be a winning formula, especially for private yacht owners thinking of shipping for the first time. As a result we booked our first boat of the BOOT on the opening weekend and are now preparing to ship her from Antigua to Palma on one of our regular transatlantic services.’
Peters & May Group CEO David Holley added,
"2017 has begun with another positive step in the growth of the Peters & May Group. We launched two revolutionary products for shipping oversized cargo, ‘Flat Rail’ and ‘Cat Cradle’. These fall under the specialist company ‘Bespoke Load Solutions’ and the response both at the BOOT and in the shipping industry has been a very good indicator that our simple solution for shipping out of gauge cargo is a good investment for both us and our clients. I’m looking forward to developing this and expanding the shipping options available on container line routes in the future.
