First boxship directly from China to UK arrives at the Port of Tyne

The Port of Tyne has welcomed the first container ship to arrive directly from China in the United Kingdom, representing a turning point for South Shields as a potential destination for logistics providers seeking an alternative to congested southern ports.

The vessel that has been efficiently unloaded, was utilised by a number of retail companies to ensure a wide range of consumer goods would arrive in time for peak trading periods.

"This is the first time we have handled containers coming directly from China and it demonstrates that the port can have a significant impact on easing current challenges of capacity being experienced within the UK shipping and logistics sector," commented Richard Newton, commercial director for logistics at the Port of Tyne.

"It also means people are potentially able to get the goods they want more quickly," added Newton.

Meanwhile, as the UK continues to struggle with inbound supply chain issues, the Port of Tyne has expanded its range of intermodal services, with the most recent, offered by GB Railfreight (GBRf), connecting South Shields with strategic rail hubs in Yorkshire and the Midlands.
