Danish-based container shipping company Maersk Line is launching a new service, operated by its subsidiary Seago Line, connecting Dublin, Liverpool and Algeciras as the company aims to boost its existing network.
With the new service, Maersk will provide a direct service between the British Isles and Spanish Algeciras that will connect the whole of Mediterranean and North Africa.
“With competitive transit times and convenient berthing windows, we are well-placed to serve customers who seek new opportunities through this Mediterranean connection. Furthermore, our customers located in the Liverpool hinterland can now access South European and North African markets with Seago Line as a complimentary addition to our existing offer, while for Irish cargo this becomes an attractive alternative to the current feeder option via Rotterdam,” says Seago Line General Manager for UK & Ireland Robert Clegg.
The new service will be Maersk Group’s first ever direct connection to Dublin. This is also the first time that the Maersk Group Company has used Liverpool for UK cargoes in over 10 years.
Seago Line’s Irish Sea service will offer 6 days transit time between Algeciras and Liverpool and 7 days between Algeciras and Dublin. The first call to Liverpool is planned on April 13 and to Dublin on April 14.
