FastShip Signs Cargo Agreement
Thursday, November 04, 1999
FastShip has signed agreements for wholesale cargo commitments with international freight forwarders AEI Circle International, GeoLogistics and MSAS Global Logistics. The agreements state that the shipping companies must commit to purchase future cargo space on the company's high-speed trans-Atlantic service on a "take-or-pay" basis upon service commencement in 2003.
The agreements closely follow the commitment by the French government to establish Cherbourg as the European hub for FastShip's innovative trans-Atlantic service.
