Europe Caribbean Line to call Hull

ECL is switching its UK breakbulk/project cargo calls from one Associated British Ports’ east coast port to another

Europe Caribbean Line (ECL), represented in the UK by Baltic & European Shipping, saw its first call at ABP’s Port of Hull this month, with over 300 tonnes of heavy vehicles and industrial components exported to Guyana, Suriname and Trinidad.

 

The line has relocated from the Orwell estuary to the Humber estuary after more than 15 years of continuous calls at ABP Ipswich, reportedly "to bolster customer accessibility in the Humber, Midlands and Northern regions, whilst continuing to serve the rest of the UK."

 

Richard Platts, Group Head of Marine for Kestrel, which owns Baltic and European Shipping, said: “As a national and international liner and port services agent, we believe this move ensures that ECL is better located to serve both existing and potential clients in these expanding Caribbean and South American economies.”

Baltic & European Shipping is the UK’s largest liner agency group and was recently awarded the Queens Award for International Trade 2018. It operates its National Marine and Port Services Centre from the Waterside Business Park in Hessle, near Hull.

 

Humber-based company Global Shipping has been contracted for the stevedoring of the King George Dock based operation.

 

ABP Humber Director, Simon Bird, said: “We’re pleased to welcome new trade to the Humber as we continue to unlock new trading links to international markets. It’s also another example of where ABP’s network of 21 ports has been able to accommodate our customers’ changing requirements, in this case, moving from our operation in Ipswich, to our operations on the Humber.”
