Pole Star & Radio Holland Netherlands Extend Their Commercial Co-operation
Pole Star and Radio Holland Netherlands have signed a Distributor contract that enables Radio Holland Netherlands to offer the complete Pole Star portfolio encompassing Fleet Management, Marine Asset Tracking, SSAS Alert Advanced, Ship Security Reporting System (SSRS) and LRIT Conformance Testing to their shipping customers.
Radio Holland Netherlands, an Imtech Marine company, has also become an Approved Service Centre (ASC), providing parts and servicing for Pole Star onboard equipment.
Duncan Halliday, Pole Star’s Head of Distributor Management, says: “It is a logical step to increase the commercial relationship between Pole Star and Radio Holland Netherlands. Radio Holland has sold our online LRIT testing service since 2008 with RH Netherlands alone completing over 2,000 tests. Our intention is to build on this foundation and we are delighted that, with RH Netherlands as a Pole Star distributor and ASC, they will now be able to provide additional Pole Star services to their customers.”
Nico van Leeuwen, Radio Holland Netherlands’ Commercial Manager, comments: “The Pole Star portfolio complements the range of quality products we currently offer. We see a real benefit to our customers, specifically in the Fleet Management and counter-piracy solutions (SSAS and SSRS) which will enable them to monitor vessel operations and enhance security management, both issues of paramount importance to the maritime industry today.”
