Assigned by the Government of New South Wales, this contract is a franchise to operate and maintain the Sydney Ferries service, which consists of a fleet of 31 vessels and 37 wharves, transports 14.5 million passengers each year and is operated by 560 staff.
Fixed for a 7-year period with extension option, the contract, starting end of July 2012, is for a revenue of 800 million Australian dollars, equivalent to about 630 million euros.
The transformation of Sydney’s ferries also depends on the fostering within Sydney Ferries of a new customer-centric culture of pride, respect, efficiency and innovation.
The introduction of new business practices and productivity optimisations will help improve the service while at the same time saving money.
