New Scottish Cargo Service

Monday, November 23, 2009

Scottish cargo customers are benefiting from the launch of a new domestic service, linking the Port of Grangemouth to strategic east coast English ports.

Forth Ports has recently teamed up with Feederlink to provide a service from Grangemouth – the UK’s largest feeder port – to Southampton, offering an opportunity for Scottish customers with export, import and domestic cargo needs. The new route meets the demands of a range of industry sectors – in particular retail and supermarket trade – and port centred logistics.

The new service builds on the Port of Grangemouths’s reputation as one of Europe’s premier feeder ports, and reinforces Forth Ports’ recent capital investment in the Port. In addition, the introduction of the route significantly improves the availability of a sustainable alternative to road haulage for transporting goods across the UK.

Feederlink already calls to Felixstowe, Rotterdam, Tees, Tyne and Immingham
from the Port of Grangemouth. Feederlink vessels will depart from the Port of Grangemouth for Southampton, calling at Port of Tyne on the return journey, bringing up the number calls at Grangemouth to six a week.

Forth Ports also offer services on behalf of Samskip, BG Freight and MSC, linking the Port of Grangemouth with Rotterdam and Antwerp.
