WTC Logistics UK is delighted to have been announced as the Official Logistics Partner, with a team entry, in the 2019-20 edition of the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race.
For the inaugural campaign, WTC Logistics UK will ensure that the four containers packed with supplies, tools, and equipment, reach each of the stopovers ahead of the fleet’s arrival. A race in itself, the year-long movement of containers to destinations in six different continents would not be possible without the Logistics Partner’s extensive knowledge in project, supply chain management and its hands-on management structure.
In addition, WTC Logistics has announced a team entry in the race, Team WTC Logistics, which will be led by British Skipper Mark Burkes. On leading Team WTC Logistics, Mark says, “I am very excited to work with WTC Logistics, a Team Partner whose business is all about making things happen all over the world. The crew will be proud to represent Team WTC Logistics as we race around the globe.”
Operations Director Anthony Clarke said: “WTC Logistics is very proud to have been chosen as the appointed logistics provider to such an iconic and prestigious event as the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race.
“Working with the Clipper Race enables us to showcase our in-depth knowledge and expertise as one of the leading project management logistics companies. And it will allow us to utilise our 20 offices and worldwide partners to deliver such a historic race. We are excited with this new challenge in our WTC history and are looking forward to working with the Clipper Race team and global partners in what will be another exciting chapter in the lives of all taking part in this inspiring event. To dream is to do.”
