Patrick, the ports division for Asciano, has signed a new five-year deal with Danish shipping giant Maersk Line which will result in an increase in the movement of the current 503,000 containers by an expected 190,000 containers per annum.

To assist in improving service for all Patrick customers, the company has ordered five new cranes for its container terminals to be delivered over the next 18 months. It currently operates 22 cranes across its business.

Spokesperson Rhianna Fursdon tells News that the Post Panamax cranes were ordered from ZPMC, two of which will be sent to Port Botany, two to East Swanson in Melbourne and one to Fremantle port.
