July 20, 2011

Asciano has singed a new five-year container terminals contract with Maersk Line.

Asciano’s ports division Patrick inked the deal last night. Asciano CEO John Mullen says the contract is a testament to the strength of Patrick’s container terminal operations.

"Our renewed partnership will see Maersk Line Boomerang Service vessels delivering an additional estimated 190,000 containers at our Fremantle, Melbourne and Brisbane terminals ensuring that Patrick retains its strong position within the Australian market," Mullen says.

"To ensure the efficient and timely movement of this additional volume we are continuing to work positively with our employees to reach an agreement which will ensure we achieve continuous operations at each of our terminals, lifting productivity on Australian wharves towards global rates to maintain a high standard of service for Maersk Line and all our other customers."

Asciano has ordered five new cranes for its container terminals to be delivered over the next 18 months.
