Eimskip to call at Rotterdam Shortsea Terminals
Rotterdam Shortsea Terminals have expanded their client portfolio with the shipping company and global forwarder, Eimskip now calling at the terminal. “With the introduction of Eimskip to our customer base we will be adding a wide array of services and ports to our ever-growing network,” the company said.
Eimskip is an international transport company with headquarters in Iceland that will offer direct weekly line service connections to Reykjavik, Grundartangi, Torshavn, Fredrikstad, Immingham, Bremerhaven and Vestmannaeyjar. Besides this, a range of North American and Canadian ports are called via Eimskip’s own network, RST said.
Customer service and schedule reliability is key according to Eimskips local operations manager Peter Schouten. “We offer services towards high demanding markets in industry and niches like fresh fish where being on time is key” he says.
According to RST’s CCO Jeroen Zwijnenburg, “With Eimskip we have gained an important strategic partner for the future creating new opportunities for all involved.”
Over the past months, a mutual team has been preparing for this step. The discharge of vessel Jonni Ritscher marks the first official act of this new partnership and all the preparations that have been made.
