New route for Tilbury

[ May 1, 2014   //   ]

Maersk’s Seago Line short-sea haul specialist is to launch a new service between Morocco and Tilbury from 1 May.

The first vessel will be the WES Carina with a cargo of fresh tomatoes and citrus fruits marking the start of the service call which will see ships arriving at LCT weekly every Thursday.

Perry Glading, chief operating officer at Forth Ports (owners of Port of Tilbury and LCT) said: “Tilbury is a reefer handling specialist and coupled with our unrivalled infrastructure and connectivity to the UK market this fresh seasonal produce will reach the market quickly.”

Robert Clegg, UK and Ireland general manager for Seago Line, added: “It’s important that fresh produce reaches the UK market as fast as possible. We’ve chosen Tilbury for its key location and efficiency in handling the specialist product. We look forward to working with the team at LCT over the coming months.”
