Unifeeder launches new service from Lithuania to UK

Associated British Ports (ABP) and DP World-owned Unifeeder have launched a new service from Klaipeda in Lithuania to the Port of Immingham, Lincolnshire, UK.

The new route is a weekly sailing offering faster transit times, with the vessel leaving Klaipeda on Fridays and Immingham on Mondays.

The maiden voyage saw the Elbspring vessel arrive in the Humber on 15 September.

Simon Bird, regional director for the Humber ports, said, “This [new route] is great for the market, again showing the proximity of Immingham to the European markets and the need for customers to bring their goods in through faster and more direct routes.”

ABP said this new route enables more cargo to be moved by sea to reduce the number of land miles laden and empty containers required to travel, providing sustainability benefits across the value chain.
