Transporter hires rep


Palm Beach Gardens-based Sevenstar Yacht Transport has hired a new West Coast representative, Kris Caren, to service clients on the western coast of British Columbia, the United States and Central America.

Sevenstar partners with DYT Yacht Transport to specialize in both lift-on/lift-off (LO/LO) and float-on/float-off (FLO/FLO) services offered by a fleet of over 120 ships wholly owned and operated by Amsterdam-based parent company Spliethoff Group.

In the past eight years, Caren has worked with Spliethoff to develop new roll-on/roll-off (RO/RO) shipping lines that carry break bulk and heavy lift cargo in the European and trans-Atlantic trade. He also has helped the company consolidate its regular lines that service the Mediterranean, U.S. and Caribbean markets. Prior to joining Spliethoff Group, Caren established RO/RO shipping lines in Spain for the European shipping company Transfennica.

“This first-hand experience coupled with his skills working in markets around the globe is what makes Kris the ideal candidate for Sevenstar clients,” said Klabbers. “Kris will be involved in every part of the shipping process, from providing quick rate quotes to overseeing the loading and discharging operations.”
