PD Ports and Cargow forge ties

North East-based PD Ports has signed a deal with Dutch shipping line, Cargow. The agreement will see a direct bi-weekly connection with west coast of Norway, east coast of Iceland, Faroe, Shetland, and Rotterdam providing additional connections for key sectors in the Tees Valley including project, offshore, wind, oil and gas.

The Cargow deal is a new market to PD Ports and the company will transport the ship’s cargo to / from the Midlands via its road haulage fleet.

Kim Catterick, general manager – key accounts at PD Ports said: “Developing this relationship with Cargow demonstrates our size, scale and capability to support growing requirements of international trade, putting us at the forefront in the UK for facilitating trade movements as an asset of national importance.

“The relationship strengthens our position here at Teesport as a port of choice, with Cargow joining many other shipping lines choosing this as a route for transporting goods to their closest end destination in a more efficient and cost-effective manner – a core service strength of PD Ports.”

The vessel calling at Teesport is MV FRIGG W, a container and heavy lifting/project cargo vessel represented by Messrs CockfieldKnight.

Stefan Stefansson, CEO of Cargow said: “We have chosen Teesport because of its location, accessibility and connectivity for onward transport, as well as its high service level. We are pleased that Teesport is being added to our network and have confidence in PD Ports because the company is well experienced in handling both containers and project cargoes.”
