WSS joins CLIA Global Executive Partner Program
Wilhelmsen Ships Service (WSS) has strengthened its links to cruise industry owners and operators by becoming a member of the Cruise Lines Industry Association’s Global Executive Partner Program.
WSS counts some of the world’s biggest cruise operators among its clients, providing port agency, safety and technical support services to 279 cruiseships on a global basis. Joining the CLIA Global Executive Partner Program as a member of the Technical and Supply Chain group will enable WSS to build closer links to cruise customers and access the latest thinking about how these services are evolving.
Justin Scholl, Key Account Manager, WSS said:
“Like other shipping sectors, the cruise market is confronting change in terms of the need for optimisation and efficiency, compliance with regulation and best practice. Controlling total cost of ownership over the lifetime of products and services is critical. WSS is uniquely placed to provide such solutions and this partnership enables our experts to work with decision makers within the cruise lines to achieve these goals.”
