Peters & May was appointed as a UIM-approved marine transport provider for the next three years. In addition, Peters & May is the first marine transport provider to be accredited by the UIM for the standard of logistics services it provides and for its focus on development of the sport at all levels, the company announced.

"We are delighted to receive such an accreditation from powerboat racing's governing body, and even more delighted to have been selected as their approved marine transport provider," Peters & May CEO Dave Holley said in a statement.

"Our team is passionate about the sport and this shows the way that we carry out our business," he added. "The UIM is instrumental in assisting powerboaters of all ages, genders and nationalities to compete in the sport, and we are honored to be involved with such an organization."
