Samskip starts service between Zeebrugge and Teesport


As from week 15, Samskip Multimodal Container Logistics will start a new weekly service between Zeebrugge in Belgium and Teesport in the United Kingdom. The Samskip vessels will leave Zeebrugge on Friday evenings and will leave Teesport on Sunday afternoons for arrival back in Zeebrugge on Mondays. Samskip will offer the service on a door to door basis with its own fleet of equipment as well as on a quay to quay basis for shippers’ owned equipment. 
According to Diederick Blom, Route Director at Samskip Multimodal Container Logistics, the new sailing is a valuable addition to the existing Samskip services to and from the United Kingdom.  
“We are currently operating services between the port of Rotterdam and the ports of Tilbury, Hull and Grangemouth. The port of Teesport is centrally positioned between the ports of Grangemouth and Hull, making it a logical addition to our network. By calling Teesport, we can further maximize our geographical coverage in the United Kingdom and minimize the road mileage for our customers. The Zeebrugge call will furthermore increase our service coverage to the western region of Belgium, Northern France and Southern Germany. 
The ‘end of the week’ Friday evening departure from Zeebrugge will offer shippers a time efficient transport solution. We have decided to start with a weekly call but depending on customer demand, we will look into the possibility of increasing the frequency.”  
Diederick Blom furthermore explains that customer demand is one of the main drivers behind the new service to Teesport:  
“We have experienced an increasing demand for a Teesport call from our customers. Over the years Teesport has grown in popularity and volume. The port offers excellent hinterland connections to the Midlands, the North West and North East of England. Furthermore, Teesport has successfully embraced the concept of port centric logistics, offering shippers cost efficient warehousing and distribution facilities in addition to traditional port services.”
