DB Schenker has been awarded a five-year contract to provide international freight forwarding and Customs clearance services to Shell Australia.
To support the contract, DB Schenker will utilise its global network of oil and gas offices that are specialised and accustomed to the unique logistics service requirements of the industry.
The operations teams in Brisbane, Darwin and Perth will be supported by DB Schenker iTeams software solution that allows for full visibility and tracking through all stages of the logistics cycle.
"We are proud to continue our global relationship with Shell in Australia to supply both QGC [Queensland Gas Company] in Queensland and the Prelude FLNG [Floating Liquified Natural Gas] facility in Western Australia with international freight and customs clearance services," said Frank Vogel, director projects/oil and gas, Australia and New Zealand.
"This contract will support our goal to become the market leader in the industry by 2020."
