Cosco feeder to call Southampton

COSCO is introducing a new weekly call at DP World Southampton, as part of a rotation including St Petersburg, Kotka, Southampton and Rotterdam

The news comes after COSCO confirmed in February that DP World Southampton will be a permanent call on this feeder service hubbing over Rotterdam.

“Traditionally ports on the East Coast of the UK serve Russia and the Baltics," said James Leeson, Head of Commercial UK Ports, DP World. This service will provide importers and exporters with an alternative option.”

 

This news comes just after Unifeeder, now part of DP World, started a new direct service between Gdynia and DP World London Gateway at the end of February. DP World is trying to build up shortsea and feeder traffic as it perceives that the deepsea sector is saturated.

 

The Cosco feeder service hubbing over Rotterdam brings the number of shortsea and feeder services that DP World’s UK terminals can offer shippers to seven weekly sailings.

 

With a reference to [the delayed] Brexit, Leeson added: “At a time when UK businesses are putting supply chain contingency plans in place, DP World already has the customs clearance systems facilities and infrastructure to keep trade flowing.

“Container feeder services from Southampton and London Gateway give business an alternative to ro-ro ports. 90% of cargo that comes through our UK terminals is customs-cleared within an hour.”
