A2B adds Teesport sailing

[ January 23, 2023   //   ]

Shortsea operator A2B-online has added an extra weekly sailing between Rotterdam, Botlek and Teesport. The service increases to four times per week from the end of January and boost total containers handled on the route to 40,000 per year.

A2B has operated into Teesport since 2014. This particular service has run since 2018, in addition to a bi-weekly Moerdijk to Teesport service that handles a further 12,000 containers annually.

Kim Catterick, general manager – key accounts at Teesport owner PD Ports, said: “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.”

Operations director at A2B-online Michael van Keulen, said: “After already successfully operating a lo lo container service between Rotterdam, Botlek and Teesport since 2018, this expansion is the next logistical step but it wouldn’t be possible without the good cooperation from our partners at PD Ports.”
