A luxury cruise line came to Hellmann Worldwide Logistics in Doral with a complicated question.
Like all cruise lines, this client needed to buy a wide range of food, beverages, equipment, spare parts, furniture, etc., from a host of vendors to supply its passenger vessels.
The line was expanding its fleet and needed a more efficient way to store the large volumes of goods it stockpiled, and manage purchases and deliveries to its ships. It also had to make sure that each vessel received the time-sensitive supplies it required at ports of call, including Miami.
To assist this client, Hellmann designed a package of solutions. Within 45 days, Hellmann provided a distribution center that the cruise line could use as its cargo operations base, storage depot and delivery center for vendors. As a result, Hellmann now supplies the client with all merchandise and equipment transportation, warehousing and IT services for its vessels. It also provides customs brokerage services for imported goods and dedicated on-site personnel, while applying its own system for managing cruise line logistics.
