The first expedition on the Tangier/Poole maritime line takes shape


A shipment of 100 freight of seasonal organic fruits and vegetables by the maritime line connecting the port of Tanger Med to that of Poole (United Kingdom) should be effective very soon.

This new maritime service will be operational on a weekly basis, with the main activity of transporting dry and refrigerated freight. The advantages of the Morocco / United Kingdom shipping line are numerous. Overall travel times for goods to and from the UK will now be reduced from more than six driving days to three days. Also, it will promote exports, in particular of agricultural products.

The Morocco (Tanger Med) / United Kingdom (Poole) shipping line will allow British importers to source fresh produce and other products directly from Africa, and export companies to improve their trade to Morocco and the United Kingdom. surrounding area. Planned for more than two years, this route will also bypass post-Brexit traffic jams and import procedures for goods arriving via Europe.

United Seaways intends to offer the new direct line at competitive rates, and promises significant emissions reductions, full logistics services, door-to-door services, customs clearance and warehousing services. This company plans to move from a RoRo or unaccompanied freight service only to the RoPax service which is accompanied by freight.

“The Port of Poole has worked closely with United Seaways to set up this ‘Brexit Buster’ service,” said Captain Brian Murphy, Director of Marine and Port at Poole Harbor Commissioners. “The service will provide a greener and faster option for importers and exporters from both kingdoms and we look forward to receiving the first shipment from Tangier shortly,” he added.
