7/8/13 12:30 PM

Samskip Multimodal is increasing capacity on short sea services connecting Rotterdam to Hull, United Kingdom, further reducing transit times.

Samskip Multimodal announced that as of 14 May it replaced the 340 TEU Veritas H with the 803 TEU Henrike Schepers on its Netherlands-UK services into Hull.

Increased capacity and fast transit times

As well as increased capacity, Samskip Multimodal customers will benefit from reduced transit times and extended cut off times in both Hull and Tilbury.

Sailing schedule

With five sailings per week, Samskip Multimodal is able to deliver cargoes anywhere in the UK within two days of their departure from Rotterdam. Deployment of Henrike Schepers has also made possible the addition of a Wednesday evening Rotterdam departure, allowing for Thursday afternoon pick-ups in Hull and for Friday deliveries throughout the UK.

Diederick Blom, Chief Operating Officer, Samskip Multimodal, says: “These improvements are focused around offering an even more competitive and sustainable connection to the rest of Europe, with improved connections to the other Samskip routes”.
