Iino Marine Service, a ship management company in Japan, has been a customer of the Liferaft Rental and Exchange program (LRE) since 2010.



Mr. Araki, Director of Iino Marine Service said, “Operating a high number of vessels on global trading patterns means that we are constantly looking for ways in which we can improve the efficiency of our operations. A solution such as LRE is both convenient and cost efficient and we are extremely satisfied with the service provided by WSS over the past three years.”

 

As WSS exhibits at this week’s Bariship 2013 event, Gen Takamatsu, Sales Manager for WSS Japan said, “For shipowners, managing the maintenance, repair and inspection of liferafts can be an expensive, unpredictable and complicated challenge. Our Life Raft Exchange program means that we take on that responsibility on behalf of the owner, providing a reliable service worldwide which is fully customised to each owner and each vessel.”
 


Across north-east Asia, the number of rafts being exchanged and serviced by WSS is growing quickly, with the number of exchanges increasing month on month.  



WSS’s Life Raft Exchange program offers a single fixed annual cost and manages the maintenance, repair and replacement of life rafts at more than 900 ports worldwide through 46 service stations today.
