Today marks a momentous occasion in the history of our company. After almost 18 months of success with our pioneering China Xpress service, we are now proud to officially announce the launch of our new shipping line – Allseas Shipping Company.
Following a successful first year of the China Xpress service, we have now made the long-term commitment by launching the first British registered shipping line in 40 years. The line specialises in import and export services from China to UK/Europe, along with import services from Bangladesh to the UK/Europe, offering direct routes to greatly reduce shipping transit times from origin to destination.
We will continue to develop the China Xpress service, which now becomes a key offer of the shipping line along with our latest Bangladesh service, Asia Xpress. In addition, we’re already working on new service routes which will include calls in Genoa, Valencia, East India, Vietnam, Cambodia, along with Transpacific routes to the USA & Canada.
The success of our China Express service, and its natural expansion into the Allseas Shipping Company, is the coming together of the expertise and capabilities of our group companies. The logistics and chartering expertise of Allseas Global Logistics. Immediate access to container equipment through 1st Containers. And the shipping liner agency experience of DKT Allseas. Together, we made the shipping line company ambition a reality.
As part of our ongoing commitment, we recently announced a series of long-term vessel TC (Time Charter’s) which includes our most recent addition and first vessel to carry the company name ‘The Allseas Pioneer,’ a 2000 TEU fully cellular container vessel.
The Allseas Shipping Company and Group co-founder, Darren Wright said: “The Allseas Pioneer is the first in a series of six of our own branded container vessels, with an investment of over $150 million, such is the commitment we have to the new company and the customers using it to steady their Supply Chains.”
“We thank the tremendous effort of our team along with the trust and loyalty of our customers in helping us make our service a huge success.”
