New shipping route links Immingham and Lithuania

Associated British Ports and Unifeeder, owned by DP World, have launched a new service from Klaipeda in Lithuania to Immingham.

The service has been launched by Unifeeder to transport containerised cargo from the Baltic port.

The new route is a weekly sailing offering faster transit times, with the vessel leaving Klaipeda on Friday and Immingham on Monday. The maiden voyage saw the Elbspring vessel arrive in the Humber on 15th September.

Simon Bird, Regional Director for the Humber ports said: “We’re delighted Unifeeder has launched this new route. This is great for the market, again showing the proximity of Immingham to the European markets and the need for customers to bring their goods in through faster and more direct routes.”

Martin Gaard Christiansen, European CEO for Unifeeder, said: “We’re delighted to bring the benefits of a faster transit time between Klaipeda and Immingham directly to our customers. In close cooperation with Immingham Container Terminal, Unifeeder offers a reliable, competitive, and environmentally friendly connection between the important markets of the Baltics and the UK.”

This new route enables more cargo to be moved by sea to reduce the number of land miles laden and empty containers are required to travel, providing sustainability benefits across the value chain.

Over the past five years container volumes have increased by over 40% as more and more businesses choose to benefit from improved access to UK, European and global markets, as well as the state-of-the-art facilities and value-added services ABP provides.
