Correct Craft, Viking choose shipper

Peters & May USA was selected as the Preferred International Freight Forwarder for Correct Craft and Viking Yacht.

"We are proud that companies with great heritage and brand value such as Correct Craft Inc. and Viking Yachts have chosen us as their preferred shipper," said Dave Holley, managing director of Peters & May USA, in a statement.

"Our dedicated team takes boat transportation seriously and, as many of us are boaters ourselves, we understand that whether the boat is valued at $8,000 or $800,000, to its owner it is precious cargo," he added.

Chicago-based Peters & May is a Federal Maritime Commission-licensed Non-Vessel Operating Common Carrier with contracts with global shipping lines because of the annual volume of boats transported. The company has its own lifting gear and a range of cradles that will support boats from up to 120 tons.
