London Gateway secures new service and expands connectivity opportunities
DP World London Gateway welcomed the new IEX service, Al Rawdah, on Monday 27th January.
The IEX service is the only shipping service linking the East Coast of India to the UK and opens up new trading opportunities for shippers in both the UK and India. With this new service, the number of direct services between the Indian sub-continent and London Gateway increases to three per week - more than any other port in the UK.
The new service provides customers with the only direct service from the East Coast of India to the UK. Previously the only option cargo owners had was to transship in Colombo, Sri Lanka with containers being offloaded from ships, stored on a yard, then reloaded on ships for the journey to the UK. The direct service provides enhanced security of cargo and preserves the integrity of the supply chain.
DP World’s Head of UK Ports, James Leeson, said:
“This is a strong endorsement of DP World London Gateway as a major global trading hub on key trade routes. It further underlines the tremendous opportunity we provide for our customers to realise game-changing value and accelerate their cargo deployments. Our proximity to the one of the largest consumer markets in Europe helps reduce costs and carbon emissions.”
Mr. Leeson continued:
“The new direct service to and from the East Coast of India is a welcome addition to our global network. DP World London Gateway ships to more countries than any other deep-sea port in the country.”
The new service which is a collaboration between COSCO, Hapag Lloyd, Yang Ming, ONE and OOCL, operates nine 6,500 TEU vessels on a weekly fixed rotation calling:
Vizag – Krishnapatnam – Chennai – Tuticorin – Colombo – Cochin – Damietta – Piraeus – Rotterdam – London Gateway– Hamburg – Antwerp – Le Havre – Damietta – Jeddah– Colombo – Vizag.
DP World London Gateway offers UK importers and exporters access to more than 130 ports in over 65 countries.
