Felixstowe sees first AE1 call

The Port of Felixstowe has welcomed the first call of Maersk Line’s AE1 Asia-Europe service, with the arrival of the Sine Maersk.

The 6,600teu vessel arrived from Tanjung Pelepas in Malaysia. It is one of 11 ships of between 6,600 and 8,600teu operating on the service.

A dedicated daily block train has been added to support the additional volume and will be operated by Freightliner.

The service delivers containers to the Birmingham International Freight Terminal at Birch Coppice and increases the number of services Freightliner operates from the port to 21 per day.
