Ferrymasters leases more trailers

[ May 8, 2015   //   ]

P&O Ferrymasters is leasing a further 400 trailers from TIP Trailer Services. It follows the first phase of its agreement last September when P&O Ferrymasters agreed a seven-year lease deal with TIP for 200 coilers and 100 huckepack trailers for intermodal rail services between Rotterdam, Zeebrugge and markets in central and eastern Europe.
Another seven-year agreement will add 250 Euroliner huckepacks – including 100 coilers – to the CEE fleet and bring 150 replacement Euroliners to the Irish division. The new type P390 huckepacks will operate largely on the dedicated P&O Ferrymasters train serving Curtici in Romania, which has been operational since September 26. They will also support the company’s intermodal route to and from Italy.
