Hapag-Lloyd commits to Fleet Xpress on 80 ships

Hapag-Lloyd has agreed a five-year deal with Inmarsat to migrate approximately 80 owned ships to services enabled for Fleet Xpress.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}Hapag-Lloyd, the sixth largest container shipping operator in the world by Twenty Foot Equivalent Unit (TEU) capacity, will transition those ships from Inmarsat FleetBroadband services to Fleet Xpress, along with five 10,500 TEU newbuild vessels.

Hapag-Lloyd has been an Inmarsat customer for more than a decade, and is moving to Fleet Xpress following the expiry of a service contract based on FleetBroadband, which unusually also included Ku-band VSAT as its back-up service.

The agreement stipulates redundant service provision that would be scalable for any future fleet growth, and includes terminals from both Inmarsat approved manufacturers Intellian and Cobham SATCOM.

“IT integration of our fleet has grown rapidly and will further develop. As a consequence, Hapag-Lloyd has to ensure that the ship-to-shore connectivity not only supports the increasing demand, but is also future proof,” said Jens Habler, head of Hapag-Lloyd IT - operations management.{/mprestriction}
