WSS Signs Safety Service Agreement With Victoria Ship Management

Press Release
Thursday, April 12, 2012

Wilhelmsen Ships Service (WSS) has signed its first fleet Safety Service Agreement with a Japanese principal. The two-year agreement, valued at $300,000 includes 25 panamax and cape-size bulk carriers and 18 product carriers on behalf of Tokyo-based Victoria Ship Management.

The WSS Safety Service Agreement provides a standardized service covering a client’s fleet, offering fixed prices for inspection at agreed ports covering fixed systems and portable equipment. The agreement also provides a single point of contact for clients, with customer support in local languages in the same time zone as the client.

Under such agreements, WSS customers receive predictable pricing and professional service due date monitoring, and harmonization, allowing service visits to be consolidated in to one or two visits annually, all of which increases customer’s efficiency and allows for better planning and increased cost savings.

“The WSS safety service agreement significantly reduces administration costs for customers,” said Gen Takamatsu, sales manager for WSS Japan. “With this deal, Victoria Ship Management will now receive safety service due dates well in advance. By adding predictable pricing to this service, they are better equipped to budget and plan ahead with greater accuracy.”
