From Kent to the Caribbean

[ March 11, 2021   //   ]

No, not a new no-frills freight ferry service – Port of Dover Cargo has announced a regular string of calls for Soreidom & Caribbean Line, which will become its first scheduled breakbulk customer.

It will use the port’s recently opened general cargo terminal for a service between Europe and the Caribbean and Latin America carrying breakbulk cargoes such as secondhand trucks.

General manager, Nik Scott–Gray, said: “We are delighted to be welcoming Soreidom & Caribbean Line to Dover for a set of regular calls in the future and are really pleased that they consider the Port as best placed to handle their shipments after successful calls here in the past.

“We are now processing every range of cargo in the industry, and with more customers securing the Port for a set of future confirmed visits, I have no doubt that our business and its opportunities will grow even further.”

Soreidom & Caribbean Line general manager, Robert Steptoe added: “Caribbean Line UK Ltd are delighted to announce that with immediate effect, their service into the Caribbean & North-East Coast of South America will now be served by the port of Dover. This move is designed to ensure our customers continue to receive superlative service throughout the shipment cycle.  We thank our customers for their on-going support.”
