Tilbury wins West Africa link

[ August 13, 2015   //   ]

CMA CGM ‘s Euraf1 service between Northern Europe and West Africa has started calls at Tilbury’s London Container Terminal. Six 3,500teu vessels link Tilbury and other European ports with Tanger Med, Algeciras, Dakar, Abidjan, Dakar and Algeciras, Tilbury. The inaugural call of the rotation in Tilbury took place earlier this week on 10th August.

The new service will provide competitive transit times for commodities such as bananas in reefer containers from West Africa to the UK.

LCT’s head of commercial, Angela Black, said: “Our current developments such as London Distribution Park plus the build of one of Europe’s largest chilled warehousing facilities at the container terminal, so close to London, means that LCT is the ideal port for UK exporters and importers looking to access West Africa.”
