The service covers Klaipeda, Gdynia, Norwegian ports, Dutch Moerdijk and British Immingham is extended to Thamesport in England. „The south of UK has significant volumes of import/export to Europe. Adding this alternative port should allow us to assist UK shippers and receivers to reduce their reliance on the heavily congested Channel crossings and will allow greater predictability for deliveries. It will of course also be greener route as calling at Moerdijk will reduce the distances travelled by road when looking to export to the Netherlands / Europe.” the letter said.

The new vessel can carry 45-foot high-cube containers with a width of use up to a standard pallet. Such containers have a capacity like semi-trailers of 13.6 m.
