Last November Ellerman and MSC entered an agreement for slots on transatlantic connections. Under the deal, the British operator benefits from a combination of MSC power and its independent vessel between ports in the Baltic Sea region and Scandinavia, Northern Europe and the Atlantic Coast of the United States.

The new USA Express Enhanced service includes weekly calls to the ports of Klaipeda, Gdynia (BCT), Goteborg, Bremerhaven, Antwerp, Felixstowe, Le Havre, New York, Philadelphia, Norfolk and Jacksonville. Transit time on the Gdynia – USA route is from 20 to 28 days. The first call of the MSC Katya ship at the Port of Gdynia as a part of this service took place in January. Ellerman’s Polish agent is SAFE Shipping, a member of the European transport group USS United Shipping Services.

Ellerman introduced the Port of Gdynia to its network in March of the current year when the shipowner’s ships started operating between the Hutchison Ports Gdynia terminal and Teesport and Tilbury. Recently, the Poland – Great Britain connection has been extended.
