The contract delivers the majority of containers through DP World Australia for an extended contract period, “resulting in a stronger relationship between the companies,” according to Paul Scurrah, DP World Australia CEO and Managing Director.

“We are incredibly pleased to be chosen as the stevedore and logistics partner of choice by COSCO SHIPPING lines as they continue to successfully grow their volumes between Asia, Australia and the rest of the world,” Brian Gillespie, DP World Australia Chief Commercial Officer, said.

COSCO SHIPPING Lines, which has services in Australia calling at terminals in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne, is growing their global market share in a competitive global shipping market.
