PD Ports announces additional sailings for intra-Europe service

PD Ports, owner and operator of Teesport in the United Kingdom, has announced the addition of a weekly sailing between Rotterdam (Netherlands), Botlek (Netherlands) and Teesport thanks to continued collaboration with shipping line A2B-online.

This particular service has been connecting Europe and the UK successfully since 2018.

The purpose of the expansion of the service, which will start from the end of January, is to increase sailings on the route to four times per week and increase the total number of containers handled via the route to 40,000 per year.

Michael van Keulen, operations director at A2B-online, said, "This additional sailing will increase the total capacity on this route to 40,000 containers a year which enables us to serve the growing demand of our large and loyal customer base."

Kim Catterick, general manager – key accounts at PD Ports, commented, "The addition of another weekly sailing means that we can now provide more opportunities for shippers to import and export their goods to and from Europe whilst taking advantage of our extensive service offering as a reliable trading partner. We look forward to continuing our relationship with A2B and seeing how the business continues to develop."
