It includes an additional departure from both ports during evening hours and a reduced 19-hour sailing time.
Cuxhaven Route Director Ortolf Barth said, “With one extra departure and more aligned sailing times in the evening we will provide our customers an attractive and reliable alternative to carry out their transports to and from the UK.”
He added, “So far Covid-19 and the new customs rules has not led to disruptions on our service and the whole team is working hard to keep it that way.”
Marcus Braue, the Branch Manager in Cuxhaven, said, “There is a general trend visible in the market from accompanied to unaccompanied shipments and that’s why we‘re changing the sailing times. It enables trailer customers to load during the day and to deliver the units to the port in the evening.”
The extra sailing is on Wednesdays and brings the number of weekly departures up to six into both directions.
The new schedule starts on 1 February. Selandia Seaways and Britannia Seaways serve the route.
