PD Ports’ Teesport has become the first feeder port to be served by the recently opened London Gateway.
BG Freight Line B.V. vessel, Cetus J, berthed at DP World’s London Gateway before making her scheduled visit to Teesport on December 28. Cetus J is the first feeder vessel to berth at London Gateway making Teesport the first port to receive a vessel of this type from the London based port.
Geoff Lippitt, PD Ports’ Business Development Director, said: “We are really pleased to see that the first feeder vessel to sail from London Gateway made Teesport its first port of call. One of the strengths of Teesport is the range and coverage of feeder services and we will continue to build on this and expand in the future.”
Teesport already has over 20 vessel calls a week connecting the port to the major hub ports of Europe making it the UK’s best connected feeder port.
