“We have a huge amount of cargo to move on a tight deadline,” said Sheikh Hassan bin Jabor Al-Thani, the QMSF president, in a press release from the organization. “Working with shipping timetables and this volume of cargo is not a small job and we needed to work with a company that could meet the challenge. Peters & May’s racing division is the world’s leader in this type of business and our decision was simple.
Neil McKeown, operations manager for Peters & May Racing, which has extensive experience in raceboat shipping, planning and logistics in the Middle East, said the company is looking forward to the project.
“We have demonstrated a commitment to the needs of powerboat racers and teams around the world, and we are proud to have been chosen for this prestigious project,” he said in the release.
