ADVANTAGE OF OUR SHORT SERVICE
NEW UNITED KINGDOM ALTERNATIVE ROUTE
PROMPTS ENVIRONMENTAL DEDUCTION
Beginning on October 1, a brand-new, shortened route for containerships will connect the Port of Wales' principal terminals, cutting the length of the current routes to the south and west of the UK. This will alleviate the UK's port infrastructure by reducing the amount of track travels from the East, lowering CO2 emissions, and shortening wait times for other import/export havens. Together with Briton Ferry Stevedoring LTD, Sea and Shore Services B.V. opened up new possibilities for global trade routes.
In the west of the United Kingdom, Sea and Shore Services B.V. has established an exclusive arrangement with Briton Ferry Stevedoring LTD. This agreement will provide travel time solutions for many businesses in and outside the UK, as the new approach route will relieve pressure on domestic infrastructure by eliminating the need to cross roads from eastern England with truck traffic.
“We see a high potential in creating alternative routes. This way we relieve current stress points in the biggest polluting infrastructure and increase the existing shipping capacity,” says Ing. Kees Moolenaar, CEO of Sea and Shore Services B.V.. The company is endeavouring to switch transshipments from trucks to feeder carriers. This is crucial if freight forwarders want to lighten the load on domestic transportation and thereby cut emissions. The Dutch organisation Sea and Shore reviewed the effects of transportation and believes it is crucial that shipping, which is a less-polluting mode of transportation, takes over the majority of travel times to relieve other transportation modes.
The collaboration of Sea and Shore B.V. and Briton Ferry Stevedoring LTD offers a new answer to North Sea logistics. The shipping route connects the ports of South/West England to the European ports of Rotterdam, Amsterdam, and Moerdijk. Between transshipments, the Port of Wales handles large-scale container storage (open-air and covered). Sea and Shore Services saw this as an opportunity to use sea transport to bypass congested key routes and cut overland travel time, creating Short Sea Services. Beginning in October 2022, the Port of Wales will be able to handle a large amount of TEU storage.
“Our customers have a fantastic opportunity here. They can use our own gateway to enter the United Kingdom, faster and easier."
