P&O Ferrymasters adds 25 reefers

Dover, UK: P&O Ferrymasters has added 25 refrigerated trailers to meet growing demand for temperature-controlled freight.

Thorsten Runge, managing director of P&O Ferrymasters, said: “This major expansion in our reefer fleet is the latest example of our ongoing investment in new equipment, new sites and new capabilities, all of which are designed to help customers solve complex supply chain challenges.

“Working in partnership with our parent company, DP World – the leading provider of smart logistics solutions – our aim is to use our global network to maintain and build flows at a time when international trade is going through change.”
 
“The establishment of 24/7 operating enables us to deliver 70% of the business during night time hours and on weekends. This flexibility ensures rapid rotation speed and reliable passage of fresh, perishable produce throughout the United Kingdom, saving customers precious time, providing greater visibility on the status of goods and facilitating the creation of robust supply chains.”
 
The company said: “Sustainability is at the heart of the fleet expansion. After a rigorous audit process, the British Retail Consortium Global Standards has renewed P&O Ferrymasters’ Agent and Brokers certification for their Dover and Amsterdam offices, awarding reefer trailer activity in Europoort its highest AA status for the carriage of food products – the ultimate endorsement of quality. An array of plugins available at the quay and vessels will result in significant CO2 savings, supporting P&O Ferrymasters’ objective of integrating sustainability into its operations to make a positive contribution to economies and communities.”
