Samskip also widens portfolio
Following the example of CLdN and DFDS, the Netherlands-headquartered Samskip is also enhancing its shortsea container connections between Ireland and North Continental Europe.
Brexit is again the key argument, as the operator indicated in a press release: "avoiding post-Brexit hassles applying to goods received via UK-based distributors" and "exports will benefit from greater reach into EU markets in the northern Netherlands, Germany and beyond."
The first sailing will start on 25 January, the fixed day service departs from the TMA Terminal Amsterdam on Monday evenings for arrival in Dublin on Wednesday and a weekend return to Amsterdam.
This complements Samskip’s existing Rotterdam-Ireland shortsea services by a new Monday night departure to Ireland. (cd)
