Tilbury’s London Container Terminal (LCT) announced on 7 January 2016 that Streamlines’ new Blue Stream weekly service will call at London’s major port from February, as part of a new service linking Northern Europe to and from the Caribbean, Central America and Florida.
Streamlines, which is part of the SeaTrade group, is a niche container line which operates in the Caribbean, with a focus on perishable cargo, and has launched this new service as part of their development plan.
The new Blue Stream service will commence in January 2016 from North Europe and arrive for its inaugural call at Tilbury on 12 February 2016. This rotation will prove to be one of the fastest Caribbean links to the UK.
The rotation will be Rotterdam-Tilbury-Radicatel (Le Havre)-Fort de France-Pointe a Pitre-Philipsburg-Moin – Puerto Cortes – Santo Tomas de Castilla – Rotterdam – Tilbury
