Xantic has announced an agreement to provide P&O Nedlloyd with the its AmosConnect messaging service. P&O Nedlloyd Container Line, one of the premier global shipping and international logistics companies, will upgrade its entire fleet with this sophisticated and user-friendly product that is designed especially for the maritime market. Although P&O Nedlloyd’s current application for sending and receiving email was working effectively, the company was looking for a more complete solution. In deciding to upgrade, key demands were for a proven email product with the lowest operational costs. There were other requirements too. The new solution had to offer cost allocation and reporting of all communication costs, file transfer for third-party ship management applications, reduced communication costs, a private mailbox per crewmember and global support. P&O Nedlloyd conducted a two-month trial on two vessels, the P&O Nedlloyd Southampton and P&O Nedlloyd Kowloon. Following the successful trial, P&O Nedlloyd decided to implement AmosConnect across their entire fleet

With AmosConnect, Xantic will provide P&O Nedlloyd with a complete, fully managed messaging service including the satellite connection and software. This will provide cost savings thanks to the integration of email traffic; fax traffic and file transfer, the best possible call quality and the high efficiency of the AMOS Mail software. The AMOS Mail software will be installed onboard each P&O Nedlloyd vessel and this will communicate via the AmosConnect managed hub. The hub is physically located within Xantic’s Land Earth Station in Burum, the Netherlands. As a result, calls never leave the Xantic network thereby assuring the best possible call quality, the highest throughput and lowest cost.
