Wilhelmsen Ships Service US Announces Significant Rise in Sales of LRE

Wilhelmsen Ships Service (WSS) in North and Central America announces significant rises in sales of LRE throughout 2011.

WSS Technical Manager – Safety for North and Central America George Farrelly said: “The growing success of the global LRE programme has been mirrored in North America over the past three years. As well as a significant increase in new customer sales, we have several Fleet Agreements recently signed. Our growth is a direct result of increased customer satisfaction delivered through the hard work of our employees.”

He continued; “The outlook for the region in 2012 is favourable, and we can see further opportunities to grow in several other market segments.”

WSS’s market-leading global Liferaft Exchange Programme (LRE) exchanges service-due liferafts and life-saving appliances for operational ones, allowing vessel operators to take better control of costs and reducing the chance of getting caught out by unforeseen service dates and weak links in the supply chain which can prove to be costly.

Since its launch, the LRE programme has quickly grown and is now being used by over 2,300 vessels globally. New liferaft stations are constantly being added and the service now includes 42 stations covering 632 ports worldwide.
