360 quality

The 360 Quality Association is an alliance of reefer shipping lines and seaport terminals that specialise in the handling of reefer cargoes. The Association's goal is not only to maintain the high standards established in the chain, but also to continuously improve the quality of handling, storage and transport of reefer cargoes. To do so, it requires specialised reefer vessels and terminals to be audited and certified according to its own guidelines.

We've been instrumental in developing the survey form and guidelines, making us perfectly placed to perform these audits.

Getting Ready For The Future

The future is closer than we think, in fact it is right now. The future is what we will do when we finish reading these words. It is an hour away, a minute away, a second away. The actions we take today are the future. With this perspective, how would we create a future superyacht, today? What technology would we employ to deliver on the known certainties of the future, and yet avoid obsolescence from the uncertainties we don’t know?
