This joint trade name will stand for the combined strengths of P&O Ferrymasters Ltd and Unifeeder Shortsea. The new agreement-based joint venture will enable P&O Ferrymasters to offer a much wider and even more attractive value proposition to its customers. 

P&O Ferrymasters will in the future offer four premium multimodal products to its customers: Intra-European multimodal transportation solutions via Trailer, Container, and Rail, complemented by a set of strong supportive Logistics Solutions

The agreement-based joint venture 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 chain services in Europe. For our vendors, who are key for us to deliver premium multimodal transportation and logistics services, the agreement-based joint venture will open opportunities for an even closer collaboration. All present agreements with P&O Ferrymasters and Unifeeder Shortsea will of course be honored and remain in place.
