Container shipping services company P&O Nedlloyd has struck a USD35 million deal with Equant for the provision of IP VPN services. Under the terms of the nine-year contract, Equant will provide P&O with IP VPN services for its freight management systems and messaging services, linking around 150 sites worldwide. P&O Nedlloyd hopes the agreement will cut its communication infrastructure by around 11% per year.
