Europe's largest shortsea network just got bigger
We are happy to announce that, from the 15th of August, Unifeeder’s customers will enjoy a direct vessel connecting Antwerp and Dunkerque with Teesport and Grangemouth.
This new service offers a great alternative to the busy port of Rotterdam, as well as a shorter trucking distance for cargo coming from southern Netherlands and beyond. The new connection is an addition to our other services linking Rotterdam with the ports of Felixstowe, Immingham, Teesport, South Shields and Grangemouth.
Unifeeder Shortsea provides European customers with fully intermodal door to door solutions. We find smarter ways to move any type of cargo, using the best combination of sea, rail, and road. With more than 40 years in the business and as part of Europe’s strongest feeder operator, we offer the extensive network, regularity and lead-times necessary to make shortsea a highly competitive alternative to conventional road transport.
On September 21th, 2019, the world’s first container ship retrofitted with a Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) engine, “Wes Amelie”, received LNG through a SIMOPS (simultaneous operations) ship-to-ship bunker operation from the world’s largest LNG bunker supply vessel “Kairos”.
We can finally share the outcome of our visit with Danske Rederier at the largest container terminal in Hamburg, HHLA Burchardkai. Our CEO Jesper Kristensen explains how Shortsea and multimodal transportation can benefit supply chains and most of all our environment.
