Following the increased market demand of unaccompanied freight has led to a requirement for additional terminal capacity for our North Sea Ro-Ro route Europoort-Killingholme. To meet our customers’ demand an expansion of the terminal capacity on the service on the Humber is required. As this is impossible in the current port location in Killingholme we have therefore decided to move our Europoort Ro-Ro service from Killingholme to the nearby Port of Immingham commencing 1 January 2022. This step means that we will be able to offer the increased terminal capacity required and be a service provider of both terminals and shipping operations to our freight customers.
The move of the Europoort service Ro-Ro to Immingham will not cause any delays or cancellations of the services for our customers. The Europoort Ro-Ro service is currently operated by POL Maris and Hatche.
Our other route on the Humber, Hoek van Holland-Killingholme will remain and continue in Killingholme. This route is operated by Stena Transit and Stena Transporter.
