CPS shortlisted for prestigious award

Hampshire-based Cruise and Passengers Services (CPS), which supplies valet car parking to Portsmouth International Port, has been named as a finalist in the prestigious annual Seatrade Cruise Awards.

CPS has been judged as one of the top three companies in the Supplier of the Year to the Global Cruise Industry category.

The company is part of the Independent Port Handling group which operates the international port’s southern maritime services.

Independent Port Handling development manager Lee Davis accepted a finalist certificate from awards representatives Chris Hayman and Antonius Heuer.

Lee said: ‘We are continually looking to improve the cruise experience for passengers using ports like Portsmouth.

‘If we can help passengers rest easy that their cars are in safe hands then we have achieved our goal.

‘Being named as one of the top suppliers in the industry reflects the latest technical advances that we have introduced.’

CPS has become one of the UK’s leading valet parking companies by upgrading bespoke hardware and software systems used by operatives at each of its ports.

Working out of Portsmouth, Southampton, Liverpool and Oban in Scotland, CPS has ensured the safety of more than 75,000 cars in the past year while people are enjoying their holidays.

The Seatrade Cruise Awards are judged by an independent panel of experienced cruise industry specialists, who oversee the work of maritime harbours across the country.

The awards are part of a series of global Seatrade events, which Mr Davis said is a huge honour to be a part of. They bring together websites and publications in the cruise and maritime industries to encourage innovation and produce powerful learning, networking and promotional platforms.
