NSS strengthens relationship with Mariana Express Lines
NSS was awarded the multi-million stevedoring, storage, transport and logistics contract for the international shipping line, which has a modern fleet of vessels and strong reputation for transport efficiency. Mariana Express Lines provides shipping services to importers and exporters in Townsville, Cairns, Darwin and northern Queensland.
The new contract will see the NSS team stevedore containers on the import-export chain from China and Southeast Asia. Materials handled by Mariana include containerised zinc metal from Sun Metals and containerised copper from Xstrata.
Mariana Shipping issued a comment saying that the company has established a strong working relationship with NSS, and that NSS’ reliability and flexibility established it as a standout against its competitors.
“We have worked with NSS for several years now and are pleased to advance our relationship with them,” the company said.
“After working closely with the NSS team, we have found them extremely capable and reliable, with fully-integrated logistics solutions from transport, packing, stevedoring and securing containers and project cargo.”
NSS business development manager Ross Grenside said he was pleased to begin the new partnership.
“We’re very proud to continue our long-term relationship with Mariana, which reflects strongly their confidence in our professionalism and services,” he said.
“Mariana has been a trusted client of NSS for a few years now, so we are very pleased to continue and strengthen our working partnership with them.
“The new contract is testament to our commitment to customer service and firm focus on the provision of efficient stevedoring services from ship to shore, shore to door,” he added.
