Peters & May Group are delighted to announce that they have signed a formal agreement with Portugal’s largest shipping agent- Navex.
The partnership see’s Navex as exclusive agents for Peters & May’s Portuguese trade.
The two companies began working together when one of the 52 SUPER SERIES events came to Portugal. Peters & May being the official suppliers to the 52 SUPER SERIES organise the logistics for the event and teams led by MD of Peters & May Spain, Justo Gosalbes.
The logistics include the shipping and custom work for yachts, tenders and containers and his first choice was Navex as the local agent. This combined with the RC 44 Class logistics in Portugal laid the foundations to the relationship.
Through this close working relationship there was a clear benefit with the successful collaboration on the Portuguese events prompting further projects and discussions which resulted in numerous shipment projects benefiting from each company’s strengths and contacts to provide clients with the best bespoke solution for their needs.
The agreement also includes the key Portuguese Islands Madeira and Azores, which provide a strategical stop for yachts of all sizes making transatlantic voyages.
Justo Gosalbes, MD of Peters & May Spain commented ‘Navex hold similar strong values to us when dealing with clients and take pride in what they do, the synergy between the two companies was hard to ignore!’
He continued- ‘When we are looking after the 52 SUPER SERIES and RC 44 event logistics it’s important to have trusted local agents on the ground at all the venues working with us. By working with Navex we were able to bring together a group of likeminded people to work on a custom solution for the teams, which has not disappointed.’
João Silva, Executive Director of Navex commented “We are extremely pleased to formalise this great working relationship with Peters & May Group. Being the largest shipping agent in Portugal and having worked on many projects together already, we felt it was the next logical step to combine our expertise to provide seamless solutions for clients wanting to ship in and out of Portugal, including Madeira and Azores. There are many opportunities to develop and we are confident that our combined strengths will be strongly valued by our customers.
