The newly added service targeting deep-sea import and export traffic will significantly expand Feederlink’s existing route network, providing its clients with more than 26 calls each week at UK ports.

Ideally placed on the North East coast continental Europe and Scandinavia, shipping through this multimodal facility offers distinct advantages for companies seeking better connections instead of battling through the congested south-east and adding thousands of unnecessary road miles to the mix.
