South Shields direct container ship from China

Tags: , , ,


The first ever container shipment of imports coming directly from China into the UK has docked and been unloaded in Port of Tyne.

The ship was used by a number of leading retailers, to ensure a wide range of consumer goods would arrive in time for peak trading periods. This is a turning point for South Shields as a potential destination for logistics providers looking for an alternative to congested Southern ports.

The Commercial director for logistics at the Port of Tyne, commented: “This is the first time we have handled containers coming direct from China and it demonstrates that the Port can have a significant impact on easing current challenges of capacity being experienced within the UK shipping and logistics sector.”
