PSP Logistics Returns as Team Partner
25 July 2017
The successful relationship between the Clipper Race and PSP Logistics is set to continue for a third consecutive race.
We are very happy to announce that the global freight forwarder and international boat transportation company will return as a Team Partner in the Clipper 2017-18 Race, following campaigns in the 2013-14 and 2015-16 editions. PSP Logistics will also return for the fifth consecutive time as the Official Logistics Supplier.
As well as providing general sea and air freight services to clients all over the globe, the British based PSP Logistics specialises in project shipping, which includes large out-of-gauge cargo such as yachts and wind turbines.
“We are very happy to have PSP Logistics back, both as a Team Partner and Official Supplier, for the Clipper 2017-18 Round the World Yacht Race,” says Sir Robin Knox-Johnston.
“PSP Logistics is a great example of a British business which operates globally and uses its Team Partner status to create new global opportunities.
“As our Official Logistics Supplier, PSP Logistics also plays an integral role in supporting the successful operations of the Clipper Race. Throughout the 40,000 nautical mile long race, PSP Logistics transports vital maintenance equipment that is essential to keep the fleet going.”

The decision to become a three time Team Partner was an easy one for Frank Dixie, the Founder and Managing Director of PSP, who says the company just can’t get enough of the Clipper Race.
“It’s the willingness to grab a challenge with both hands that aligns us with the race and makes us the perfect partner for its logistics,” says Frank.
“The last two races have proved to be an amazing opportunity to build our profile on a global platform as a Team Partner, while supporting something very important to us.
“It’s a golden opportunity to take the PSP brand worldwide once more and we couldn’t be more excited to be involved.
“Similar to our rules for transporting boats, I’d urge the PSP Logistics team to be fast, efficient, and most of all, safe. At PSP Logistics, we make life-long connections with the people we meet across the world and we’re sure the team will do just that as they encounter new people, cultures, and places.”
The Skipper for the PSP Logistics team will be unveiled shortly.
There is still time to be a crew member on board PSP Logistics or one of the other eleven teams. Spaces for the Clipper 2017-18 Race are going fast, and applications are also now open for the 2019-20 edition of the race.
