Procurement and development

Spare sourcing through our Purchasing Department provides many advantages. Hill Robinson has built excellent relationships with many suppliers and provides an extensive range of purchasing services that can be of tremendous benefit to Owners, Captains and Chief Engineers, fulfilling their needs, ensuring fast delivery and saving cost. Our experience enables us to confidently understand the business and often to suggest alternative products or sources that may be more cost effective or indeed more suitable.

While from our suppliers side, a good rapport and knowing who to contact ensures trust and rapid reaction. Vital when an urgent delivery to the yacht is required.

We take care of:

  • Negotiation
  • Ordering
  • Processing
  • Administration
  • Invoicing
  • Transport
  • Assistance with Customs clearance and VAT.

This expertise not only saves time, but also costs which are passed on. Spare sourcing for a fleet brings with it better purchasing power, best value for money and by retaining full control of the process we are able to be fully transparent.

  • Parts and provisioning
  • Owners supply and Project Management
  • Special projects

Hill Robinson offers procurement solutions to suit your specific needs. From tenders, toys to helicopters or fixed wing aviation, our Project Team have the experience and get the best solutions to fulfil any Owner special requirements.

Procurement is a major part of any new build or refit project management programme.

From simple cost comparisons or handling end-to-end orders for new navigation, galley or engine room equipment to arranging transport using conventional air, sea and road transport, dedicated couriers, we can handle the entire process all the way through to proper acceptance once delivered onboard.

We make sure the delivery is correct and you get what you need when you need it.

For moving the largest items, through our aviation department we often arrange air cargo charters from small cargo planes to the biggest Antonov or private jet.

 The Purchasing Department at Hill Robinson is your “one-stop-shop” for spare sourcing at any time, whether for urgent requirements, technical or provisions during high season, or when planning a winter refit.
