Inmarsat's Fleet Xpress picked by Hapag-Lloyd

Monday 20 March 2017 | 15:27 CET | News
Inmarsat was awarded a five-year contract by container shipping operator Hapag-Lloyd to migrate all its ships to Fleet Xpress services. Hapag-Lloyd will transition all the ships that it manages in-house from Inmarsat FleetBroadband services to Fleet Xpress. The agreement also covers five 10,500 TEU vessels as new builds. Hapag-Lloyd has been an Inmarsat customer for more than a decade, and the transition commitment to Fleet Xpress coincides with the expiry of a service contract based on FleetBroadband with VSAT back-up via Ku-band.

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