SHORT SEA FEEDERS: Samskip switch vessels

Some time ago the Geest North Sea Service was incorporated into services run by Samskip. One vessel that traded on the route was Geest Trader (1995/2,899gt). Owned by Limburg of Schuelp, Germany, she is operated by G. Kopping Reederei Gmbh, also of Schuelp, but is on charter to Samskip.

Still retaining her Geest name, she operated between Hull and Rotterdam but recently has visited several other ports in the Samskip schedule. The company operate five sailings a week from Rotterdam to Tilbury, five from Rotterdam to Hull, and one each from Rotterdam to Grangemouth and from Zeebrugge to Teesport.

A quay-to-quay service on UK routes is offered, as well as door-to-door container services, with a four-vessel schedule. In recent weeks Geest Trader has visited both the Thames and Teesport before returning to Hull for a few days in January.
