"The agreement with WSS will allow us to manage costs and at the same time provides a level of predictability in service levels that will ultimately enable us to operate more efficiently.”

We are very proud that Wilson Ship Management has looked to WSS as a partner for the future and pleased that we can now provide them with a specialised safety solution," said Glenn Frederiksen, account manager, WSS.
