Following a two-month tender process, P&O Ferrymasters has strengthened its position as a leading pan-European transport supplier for US chemicals and performance materials company Cabot Corporation with a new two-year contract that doubles previous volumes.

Eric Staal, general manager sales & development Benelux, who is responsible for the account, says: "This is a significant win for us – it shows that high quality service and strong customer relationships are key elements for lasting success."
