Unifeeder, one of Europe’s largest feeder operations, is launching a service linking Teesport with Hamburg three times a week. It will also call at Rotterdam.
Unifeeder managing director Jesper Kristensen said: “We are very pleased and excited to include Teesport in our already extensive feeder network. We hope our many customers will benefit from our decision to include the UK East Coast in our future service calls.”
Frans Calje, PD Ports’ MD unitised, said: “In the first quarter of 2010, we have seen some 68 per cent year-on-year growth in volumes at our two container terminals compared to the first quarter of 2009 from 35,000 to 58,700 TEU. We are expecting to see a 40 per cent growth over the whole year to December 2010 – watch this space.”
