Spaniards on the British coast

The first vessel in a new dedicated service from Spain and Portugal to Great Britain called at Teesport recently. The ‘Kristin Schepers’, a vessel with the capacity to carry 800 containers, arrived from Aveiro (Portugal) to discharge containerised cargo for onward distribution by road.


The new route, which also includes calls in Rotterdam, Cadiz, Setubal and Tilbury, will initially run fortnightly and increase frequencies to once a week in 2023. Teesport serves as a shortsea hub for the Midlands and Scotland for the new direct link from Cadiz and Portugal. The port is currently further developing the Northern Gateway Container terminal.
