Seago Line introduces new vessel to Liverpool service

Maersk subsidiary Seago Line has introduced a new vessel to its recently created feeder service calling at Liverpool.  Independent Accord has already started operating on the new cargo route between Algeciras-Liverpool-Dublin that began in April.

The service was established to provide direct cargo connections to and from the north west of England to Ireland and onwards to the Mediterranean, providing trade links to North and West Africa. It offers a six-day transit time between Algeciras and Liverpool, with vessels arriving and departing on Wednesdays.

The return to Liverpool in April was the first time that the Maersk Group Company had used the port for UK cargoes in over 10 years and is its first ever direct connection to the Irish capital. The Independent Accord replaces the 1,100 TEU Antwerp, which has operated the route since April.

Patrick Walters, Commercial Director at Peel Ports, said: “We were very pleased that Seago Line and Maersk returned to Liverpool, signalling their confidence in the port, especially in the run up to the opening of Liverpool2. We’re even more delighted that this has proven to be a solid business move so quickly after the service started.”
