Unifeeder to add Gdynia-London Gateway shortsea call

DP World has been quick to leverage its ownership of feeder and shortsea service operator Unifeeder.

 

In announcing this service for London Gateway, up to now a purely deepsea port, DP World plays the anxiety-about-Brexit card and the need for the UK-Continent supply chain to build resilience into its supply chains by reducing dependency on the Dover Straits accompanied trucking model.

"This new connection is part of Unifeeder’s strategy to provide a competitive transport alternative for our customers, as well as, ensure a steady flow for their cargo to the UK, via multiple points of entry," said Unifeeder.

 

"Due to integration to the UK’s largest Logistic Park as well as great accessibility to the highway and rail connections, DP World London Gateway is a true logistic hub, making it a powerful extension of Unifeeder’s network," said Timm Niebergall, Director of Unifeeder Shortsea.

 

"The service upgrade is an addition to Unifeeder’s existing multi-gateway setup connecting five UK ports - Grangemouth, South Shield,s Teesport, Teesport, Immingham and Felixstowe with Hamburg, Rotterdam, Dunkirk and Antwerp and several ports in Eastern Europe. This strategy allows us to offer our customers door-to-door solutions from most of Europe to anywhere in the UK.

 

Last September Unifeeder introduced bigger ships into its Baltic-UK short sea services. At that time, the company’s shortsea director Mr Niebergall stressed the importance of acute driver shortages pushing shippers and forwarders away from all-road via the Dover Straits.
