Zeamarine has inked its largest contract to date with the business set to employ its latest newbuildings.

The contract with Schenker Australia will see the Zeaborn unit carry 450,000 freight tons from China to Western Australia.

Its ZEA-type 14,900-dwt newbuildings will undertake the work, with Zeamarine chief commercial officer Dominik Stehle stressing the ships are proving to be a valuable asset.
