London - One of the larger container transportation company in Europe, Samskip, has secured its supply chain against Brexit disruption.
With many questions remaining over the exact nature of the future EU-UK trading relationship, Samskip says that regular, reliable and cost competitive container services are a key element in planning for the future.
“The months ahead will see uncertainty for companies trading goods between the UK and the EU and businesses are looking to secure their supply chains,” says Andy Foulds, Samskip UK Sales Director. “Samskip is moving cargo for blue chip customers now which have never done business with us before and which seek containerised transportation solutions to ensure the availability of their products on the shelves.”
The company recently scaled up sailings between Hull and Benelux ports to 11 per week, adding to its existing three calls per week into Tilbury and a weekly call into Grangemouth. Container volumes are growing quickly to fill the extra capacity. Foulds adds: “Under normal circumstances, offering to run ‘business as usual’ is not news, but the impending Brexit makes it the freight industry news that business is crying out for.”
