TWO new European offices have been opened by Ferrymasters, the P&O unit loads company. One will serve as the HQ for operations in France and the other as a back-up to services in West Germany.
The French HQ, in Calais at Quai de la Loire, accommodates national management, operations, marketing and administration staff.
The West Germany office, in Mannheim, Baden Wurttemberg, has been established to provide closer control of Ferrymasters door-to-door haulage services between the UK and this important industrial region.
