Port of Tyne Accepts First Ever Direct Container Ship from China


History was made as congestion in surrounding ports call for alternatives and for the first time ever, a container ship sailing directly from China stocked with retail goods was delivered to the Port of Tyne in the UK for processing.

Richard Newton, commercial director for logistics at the Port of Tyne stated, “This is the first time we have handled containers coming directly from China and it demonstrates that the port can have a significant impact on easing current challenges of capacity being experienced within the UK shipping and logistics sector.”
