Yacht solutions

From power boats to luxury yachts, we help you navigate choppy waters in your supply chain with safe and reliable transportation solutions.

Every industry is feeling the impacts of global supply chain disruption and the yacht industry is no exception. With order streams full and reliance on a just-in-time delivery model, optimisation is a must to maintain sales.

Are you looking to improve inbound materials for building new yachts? Maybe you need to transport finished boats worldwide or find a more efficient way to provide after-sales spare parts to customers. Whatever the challenge, a dedicated yacht logistics team brings comprehensive solutions that have full geographical coverage.

With our combination of industry knowledge and a broad global network, you gain access to customised and secure solutions around the world. We offer supply chain services to yacht manufacturers that include inbound from suppliers to the yards, warehousing and consolidation. As trends move to after-sales services, having spare parts available and in the right location is essential. By outsourcing through Kuehne+Nagel’s warehouses, you can maintain much-needed safety stock and reduce your shipping time to customers.

Get the most out of your supply chain experience:

  • Tailor-made design and optimisation 
  • Full visibility of your operations with our in-house app, One Global System (OGS)
  • Transportation of the finished yacht to the dealer/new owner
  • Efficient spare parts management
  • Collection of transport-related emissions data to improve supply chain sustainability

Engineering expertise:
Yachts are valuable and delicate items to transport. They require special care and meticulous preparation by logistics professionals who make safety a top priority. That is why our in-house engineering experts develop lifting, cradling and lashing plans that make for the most secure shipments.

Health Safety and Environment (HSE) is always at the forefront of Kuehne+Nagel’s Project Logistics team. With the specially developed HSE app, we ensure safe and systematic execution of site operations and detailed documentation of the process.

Technology:
The OGS app offers end-to-end visibility—at the line item level—across the supply chain. Get complete control of your operations with analytics and budget reporting that meet the specific needs of your business.

Sustainable logistics:
Building a sustainable supply chain just got easier. The OGS app lets you view and analyse transport-related emissions data, so your carbon footprint can be optimised for each transport mode.
