Evergreen to Start Own Rotterdam-Dublin Feeder

Via Evergreen hub Rotterdam, the Merseyside and Ireland get greater access to its worldwide service network

 

Evergreen Line is to operate its own feeder link between Rotterdam and Dublin as part of a local network revamp that includes an upgrade of its Liverpool service. Evergreen will run its own independent service on a weekly shuttle basis between its hub in Rotterdam and Dublin. It will also start a slot exchange arrangement with common carrier X-PRESS feeders on its weekly Dublin service from Rotterdam.

As part of the same slot exchange, Evergreen said it will also take space on the X-PRESS weekly service to Liverpool, also connecting to deepsea services via the line’s Rotterdamhub. Overall transit times to and from both ports will be enhanced and there will be an increased ability to co-ordinate the transhipment of cargo at Rotterdam.

In addition to allowing its customer base on Merseyside and in the Republic of Ireland greater access to its worldwide service network, Evergreen believes the new initiative will also better serve other regions of the UK, including the north of England, the Midlands and Scotland.

The Evergreen operated 698 TEU Vega Stockholm is due to make its inaugural sailing on the Dublin service from Rotterdam on July 30. The slot arrangement on both X-PRESS services to Dublin and Liverpool will also start this week.
