Maersk, Hutchison Ports in Terminal Deal

Monday, June 16, 2008

Maersk Line signed a 10-year agreement for terminal usage for Maersk Line at Trinity Terminal, the Port of Felixstowe, UK.  This agreement between Maersk Line and Hutchison Ports recognizes the importance of joint co-operation in the shipping industry and reflects both companies' commitment to long-term planning in the UK.
Doug Bannister - Managing Director Maersk Line UK and Ireland - said: "Maersk Line has an unrivalled global network and we strive for unmatched reliability. This new agreement with the Port of Felixstowe means we have capacity guaranteed, giving us greater control over the operation of our vessels. Greater operational control for us means greater reliability for our customers."
The agreement - signed in May - will provide Maersk Line with reliable capacity to service its regular vessel calls into Felixstowe for the next 10 years, and will commence in August this year when the Port of Felixstowe take delivery of their latest cranes.
