COSCO Shipping Lines has made DP World Australia its preferred stevedore of choice on its major services into Australia, after inking a new agreement.
The state-owned Chinese carrier has major services in Australia calling at DP World Australia terminals in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne.
Yong Pan, managing firector of COSCO Shipping Oceania said that DP World Australia had demonstrated a level of service that set them apart in Australia.
“Last year, we selected DP World Australia as our major stevedore service for our Australian flagship A3 services,” he stated.
“This agreement confirms our selection of DP World Australia as our stevedoring and logistics partner in Australia.”
DP World Australia’s chief commercial officer, Brian Gillespie, stated that the terminal operator was pleased to be chosen as COSCO’s “stevedore and logistics partner of choice … as they continue to successfully grow their volumes between Asia, Australia and the rest of the world.”
