The PSP Southampton Boat Show opened today and title sponsor, worldwide logistics and boat transportation firm, PSP announced it is to launch a new regular sailing from the UK to Australia.
PSP (Premier Shipping & Packing) will be the only British company to provide the service, which will run from Southampton, UK to Fremantle, Western Australia.
The firm has received huge customer demand for sailings to Australia, as a result of which it has worked closely with its partner in Australia, PSP alliance member AAW Global Logistics, in order to establish the service.
The maiden voyage is due to take place in October and PSP will then run regular sailings, tailoring timings to fit in with the Australian racing season.
PSP's Managing Director, Frank Dixie, announced the news on the opening day of the PSP Southampton Boat Show, of which PSP is the title sponsor.
He said: "This year has been an excellent one for PSP - our business has doubled and you can put this down to us being completely accepted by the industry. This is no mean feat because, as we all know, it is a testing industry in which, until you prove yourself, people simply won't take a chance. We have proved ourselves over and over again and our business has grown from strength to strength, culminating in us being the first British company to offer this brand new sailing to Australia. This is an incredibly exciting venture for us, which has been made possible due to our close partnership with our PSP alliance member in Australia."
The new service will join PSP's other regular sailings, which include those to the Caribbean, Europe and the Mediterranean. PSP also arranges bespoke shipping to any part of the world.
