Blue Water Shipping has arranged dry dock facilities and dry dock logistics for various cruise lines since 1999. With a full order book of new cruise ships and a need to maintain and refurbish the existing fleets, the market for dry dock logistics will continue to grow.
To ensure that Blue Water continues to offer unique solutions and end-to-end solutions, Blue Water has made an alliance and agreement with Fowlco Marine Logistics Management in Freeport, Bahamas.
The new venture will be called Fowlco Blue Water and will be a strong alternative in a market that is dominated by a few players.
Fowlco Blue Water will be the local specialist in Freeport, Bahamas offering end-to-end services to all cruise lines and shipowners who prefer a one stop shop option, including pick-up, consolidation, ocean and air freight from around the globe as well as local customs clearance, cargo handling, storage, on-site logistics management and reverse logistics.
”We know that the market has been looking for other logistical options and a provider who can offer the whole package. We are confident that the knowledge and local expertise of Fowlco combined with Blue Water’s global presence are something many of our customers will appreciate” says Kurt Skov, Founder and Chairman of Blue Water Shipping.
”Personally, I am pleased that we will be going on this journey with Blue Water, as Blue Water has been known for their good name and service in the cruise industry for many years. The Best in Town vision of Blue Water fits very well with the mindset of the Fowlco team. We want to be Best in Town in the Bahamas and be known for our dedication and local knowledge and expertise” Says Glennett Fowler, Co-founder of Fowlco Ltd. and President and Co-owner of Fowlco Marine and Logistics Management.
