Evergreen to start own Rotterdam-Dublin feeder
Dublin, July 31, 2014 (STAT):-Evergreen Line is upgrading its local network. It is going to operate its own feeder link between Rotterdam and Dublin on a weekly shuttle basis between its hub in Rotterdam and Dublin. It will also start a slot exchange arrangement with common carrier X-PRESS feeders on its weekly Dublin service from Rotterdam.
As part of the same slot exchange, Evergreen said it will also take space on the X-PRESS weekly service to Liverpool, also connecting to deepsea services via the line’s Rotterdamhub. Overall transit times to and from both ports will be enhanced and there will be an increased ability to co-ordinate the transhipment of cargo at Rotterdam.
In addition to allowing its customer base on Merseyside and in the Republic of Ireland greater access to its worldwide service network, Evergreen believes the new initiative will also better serve other regions of the UK, including the north of England, the Midlands and Scotland.
