[ May 24, 2022   //   ]

DP World is to combine its two multimodal operators in Europe, P&O Ferrymasters and Unifeeder Shortsea with immediate effect.

It will establish a single brand – P&O Ferrymasters – combining the strengths of both operators and offering customers intra-European multimodal transportation solutions by trailer, container and rail, complemented by logistics solutions.

P&O Ferrymasters chief executive Timm Niebergall, said: “By joining the forces of the two leading multimodal specialists we will establish a single brand standing for unique intra-European multimodal transportation and logistics services.

“It will enable our valued customers to benefit from the widened outreach and network, as well as direct access to a full range one-stop shop for multimodal supply chains services in Europe, while our vendors will benefit from opportunities for closer collaboration.”

Unifeeder Shortsea, a business unit of Unifeeder A/S, will operate under the P&O Ferrymasters name. All present agreements with P&O Ferrymasters and Unifeeder Shortsea will be honoured and remain in place and there will be no changes to the daily business or operations.
