P&O Nedlloyd and Farrell Lines Enroll in C-TPAT

by Canadian Shipper

P&O Nedlloyd, and its subsidiary, Farrell Lines are looking to enter the Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism.

Through participation in the Security Advisory Committee of the World Shipping Council, the two carriers have been active in the dialogue leading to the establishment of ocean carrier admission procedures for C-TPAT.

Michael J.S. Seymour, President & CEO P&O Nedlloyd, North America – will guide the carrier’s global security initiative, with Alan T. Hicks, the Company’s North American Director of Business Development, tasked with the day-to-day coordination of the security effort.

"Recognizing a need for an increasing emphasis on security, and in anticipation of carrier involvement in C-TPAT, we established early-on a global security structure," Mr. Hicks indicated. "We have security focal points set up in all geographic regions and all functional areas to manage this program."

P&O Nedlloyd, one of the world’s largest shipping companies, operates a fleet of 140 + container vessels (with a standing slot capacity of over 361,000 TEUs) and a fleet of over 700,000 owned and leased containers. In 2001, P&O Nedlloyd transported a combined volume in excess of 3.1 million TEUs.
