S Jones Containers wins APL Depot Services Contract

Oct 16, 2015
Major shipping line APL has awarded S Jones Containers Ltd an ongoing contract for container handling, inspection, repair and storage at its base in Aldridge, West Midlands.

Major shipping line APL has awarded S Jones Containers Ltd an ongoing contract for container handling, inspection, repair and storage at its base in Aldridge, West Midlands.

The contract adds APL to the company’s impressive client list, which includes Hanjin, MSC, Marfret, OOCL, Stinnes Linien, Tarros and Sloman Neptun.

Andy Cargill, Depot Manager at S Jones Containers Ltd said, “This is a very important new client for us. Not only have we won a valuable customer in a fiercely competitive marketplace, we have done so at a time when the shipping industry is growing again.”

“Generally, shipping lines have struggled a great deal in recent years and have represented a smaller percentage of our work than they have done historically, so it’s been very satisfying to see an upturn in the amount of work we receive from our shipping line customers. Having another of the world’s top ten shipping lines join us is really the icing on the cake.” 

Tony Pollock, APL’s Head of Operations UK & Ireland said, “We are looking forward to another long and mutually beneficial relationship and are extremely pleased with the service and customer focus we have received from S Jones.”

In 2014, S Jones Containers Ltd, a fourth generation, family-owned business, celebrated its centenary after a record year of container sales, hire, conversions contracts and storage of shipping containers.
