by admin

Nederland, Rotterdam, 2012. Foto; Freek van Arkel / Hollandse HoogteAs from today, Samskip Multimodal is increasing capacity on shortsea services connecting Rotterdam to Hull, United Kingdom, further reducing transit times.

Samskip Multimodal is pleased to announce that as of May 14 (today) it will replace 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.
