Amsterdam loop links bigger-than-you-think Hull port to Continent


A new service connecting Amsterdam and Hull (pop 260,000), half way up the east coast of England in Yorkshire, will add 30,000 TEU to the English port's throughput.
Container throughput at Hull, which is the third largest port on the British east coast, grew 23 per cent in 2017, reports London's Container Management magazine.
Together with its four neighbours, Goole, Grimsby and Immingham, the Humber River ports handle 17 per cent of Britain's seaborne trade.
The Samskip service departs Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays, and comes off the back of investment in Hull's container terminal, operated by Associated British Ports (ABP).
Said ABP Humber director Simon Bird: "Our multi-user container terminals in Hull and Immingham are ready to facilitate further expansion and linking the UK and the Continent."
The new service will complement the existing links that make five voyages a week.
The port recently received two ship-to-shore (STS) cranes, which will double its capacity to 400,000 TEU once they begin operations next month.
Hull's new quay cranes are part of a wider ABP commitment to its Humber River container terminals, made up of the Hull, Goole, Grimsby and Immingham facilities.
