PD Ports inks deal with CLdN for new service


PD Ports has announced a new long-term deal with worldwide logistics specialist, CLdN, to bring additional weekly sailings to Teesport.

The new service consists of four round trip sailings per week, three from Zeebrugge and one from Rotterdam.

The expansion will enable shippers to bring cargo closer to its end destination, avoiding road mileage and reducing CO2 emissions, according to PD Ports.

With the first vessel planned to arrive on 19 March, PD Ports’ CEO, Frans Calje, said: “There are still a number of challenges that are affecting global trade, such as difficult economic trading circumstances and supply chain disruptions.

“We’re absolutely delighted that we have been able to secure a contract of this nature to bring frequent vessel calls and volume into Teesport despite current circumstances… This is certainly a great boost for trade in the Tees Valley”.

The new services will also bring roll-on roll-off cargo, such as cars, trucks, trailers, and containers from continental Europe.

This deal comes several months after PD Ports welcomed the first vessel call on its brand-new service from Spain and Portugal into Teesport.
