The investment is key to the company’s strategic growth plan and will allow continued growth of new routes and services across Europe and Asia. The containers will join its fleet in H2 2019.

 

In 2018 P&O Ferrymasters announced an order for 700 new 45ft palletwide high cube containers from Unit45 and 240 new 45ft swap bodies from Centro Costruzione Furgonature Containers to add to its significant pan-European network and rapidly growing Mediterranean based businesses.

 

The additional 600 containers will again be coming from Unit45 in China. They will bring P&O Ferrymasters’ total capacity to 4,000 containers units and 2,000 trailers.

These assets will play a crucial role supporting the company’s competitive services across Europe and its new routes connecting Western Europe with Eastern Europe, Turkey and beyond.

P&O Ferrymasters will continue to expand its routes from Western Europe through to Asia by developing hubs such as its own rail terminal in Oradea, Romania, and by continuing to invest in its transport assets.

 

Wim Blomme, Intermodal Director at P&O Ferrymasters, said: “As P&O Ferrymasters continues to expand the reach of our services across Europe and Asia, we will continue to make significant investments like this into our vital transport assets to ensure the capacity and quality of service our clients need.

 

"This new investment into freight containers will support our growing network, allowing us to continue to improve transport costs through enhanced modal shift, and provide the far reaching and reliable services P&O Ferrymasters is known for.”
