Caribbean Shipping Line moves to Port of Hull
An international Caribbean shipping service has recently unlocked multiple routes to the Port of Hull, handling thousands of tonnes of breakbulk and project cargo per year, the company said in its release.
Europe Caribbean Line (ECL) represented in the UK by Baltic and European Shipping, saw its first call at ABP’s Port of Hull this month, with over 300 tonnes of heavy vehicles and industrial components exported to Guyana, Suriname and Trinidad.
The well-established line has relocated to Hull after over 15 years of continuous service, to bolster customer accessibility in the Humber, Midlands and Northern regions, whilst continuing to serve the rest of the UK.
Baltic & European Shipping - part of the Kestrel Group of companies - is the UK’s largest liner agency group and was recently awarded the Queens Award for International Trade 2018. It operates its National Marine and Port Services Centre from the nearby Waterside Business Park in Hessle.
Humber based company - Global Shipping - has been contracted for the stevedoring of the King George Dock based operation.
