[ February 25, 2015   //   ]

FPS Famous Pacific Shipping BV has launched a new, weekly ocean LCL service from Rotterdam to St. Petersburg and vice versa for general groupage cargo. It is a direct alternative to the historic routing via Vilnius, cutting transit times from 15 to four days, it says. FPS can also offer onforwarding to several key inland destinations including Moscow. Clearance in Russia is performed at port or, where required, goods can be trucked in bond for clearance at final destination.
