We provide complete procurement for provisions for your entire fleet - at fixed rates

Today, HMS’ Sea Catering manages and provides professional worldwide Sea Catering for more than 750 international container ships, tankers, ferries and research vessels. HMS’ Sea Catering increases efficiency and reduces overhead of ship owners and ship management companies by taking over the complete procurement for provisions of the fleet and supplying through its audited network of more than 400 suppliers worldwide.

Customer-Value: Cost Control and Transparancy

Our customers benefit from our experienced staff with their background from the shipping and hotel industry, our strong market position as well as our global network. Every supply is managed within a fixed “per-head/per-day rate” that gives us a monthly budget and enables us to monitor the customers’ costs. Based on this budget we co-ordinate with ships’ staff the required products in order to meet the needs of your crew. Our state-of-the-art ERP system allows us to provide you with critical data concerning the consumption of your fleet and related budgetary issues.

Tailor-Made to Your Special Requirements

HMS’ philosophy is to customise our Sea Catering service to your special requirements, based on a standardised and successful system. Our system reduces the ship owners’ and managers’ budgetary risks, inventory bound capital costs as well as administration overhead while it ensures your crew’s satisfaction.
