Viasea launches new service between the United Kingdom and Norway

Norwegian shipping line Viasea Shipping has announced the addition of a new service between the Hutchison Ports London Thamesport and Norway, increasing the range of short sea container services available from the South East UK port.

Mark Taylor, director of London Thamesport, commented on the new service, "London Thamesport is already well established as one of the leading short sea container ports in the South East of England and offers excellent service levels in both quayside and landside operations."

The south of the United Kingdom has significant volumes of import/export to Northern Europe and Baltic region, according to Morten Pettersen, managing director of Viasea, who noted, "Adding a call at London Thamesport will allow us to assist UK shippers and receivers to reduce their reliance on the heavily congested Channel crossings and will allow greater predictability for deliveries."
