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 cruise ships 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.”

Christine Duffy, President and CEO, Cruise Lines International Association said, “We are delighted to welcome WSS as a participant in the Global Executive Partner Program and we look forward to working with them in the coming year to share information, review best practices and discuss emerging issues. Organizations like WSS are important suppliers to our industry and are critical to its continued growth and success.”

Under the Global Executive Partner Program, WSS will support CLIA’s technical and regulatory expertise, while interacting with its team on issues and subjects impacting the industry where partners can provide input.
