Containerships increases services to Thamesport

The second service from Gdansk is touted as another Brexit bypass

Linked InTwitterFacebookeCard

Hutchison Ports’ London Thamesport’s position as a shortsea container port has been further enhanced by Containerships’ introduction of a second weekly service from Gdynia, Poland.

 

The service offers regular and fast connections with Poland, with improved service and transit times from Gdynia of 3-4 days and 4-6 days for the return journey.

 

Mark Taylor, on behalf of London Thamesport, said: “We are delighted to welcome Containerships’ second weekly service to London Thamesport. Containerships’ port of choice reflects the growing interest we are seeing for short sea container services into London Thamesport. This additional direct service from Gdynia provides a reliable, cost-effective short sea alternative to road transport from Poland. This will provide a welcome option for UK importers struggling with driver shortages and higher haulage rates on the continent.

 

“As Brexit draws nearer, more and more importers and exporters are reviewing their supply chain strategies, looking for routes that offer high resilience whatever the Brexit outcome. Working with our partners at Hutchison Logistics, and utilising London Thamesport’s locational advantages, we are ideally placed to help in that process.”

 

Containerships’ services are designed to offer a competitive, environmentally friendly alternative to road transport through frequent departures and the use of 45ft palletwide HC containers that offer the same loading capacity as road trailers.

 

  • CMA CGM has completed its acquisition of Containerships, and is pursuing its strategy towards the protection of the environment with the upcoming entry into Containerships’ fleet of four 1,400 TEU vessels powered by liquefied natural gas (LNG). These vessels will be followed, from 2020 onwards, by the entry into service of the nine 22,000 TEU and two 1,400 TEU container ships ordered by the CMA CGM Group. In addition, Containerships has a fleet of LNG-powered trucks, enabling the CMA CGM Group to offer LNG throughout the transport cycle.
