Zeamarine scores largest ever contract

German heavylift and breakbulk specialist Zeamarine has been awarded its largest ever contract by Schenker Australia for the BHP South Flank Project in Western Australia.

Zeamarine will utilise its new ZEA 14k-900 vessels for the project, which encompasses the transportation of around 450,000 freight tons of heavy and oversized modules from China to Port Hedland.

“We are extremely proud of this major award, which represents the largest contract awarded to Zeamarine since its inception. The ZEA 14k-900 vessel class has proven again to be a valuable asset and we are pleased that our clients recognize the value of these modern and ecologically-friendly vessels,” commented Dominik Stehle, chief commercial officer at Zeamarine.

  1. Wonder if this contract pays money or has been awarded to the most aggressive player undercutting the others, i.e. loss maker from day one.
    Most contracts these days go to the cheapest not the best carrier. Nature of the business which unfortunately favours the shippers and not the carriers. A vicious circle in the long run.
