DKT Allseas, a UK-based shipping agent turned liner operator, formally started its own container shipping company this week.
Allseas Shipping Company is the latest addition to the company’s China Xpress service, which has been running for the previous 17 months, eventually adding connections connecting Bangladesh to Europe.
This week’s announcements include calls to Genoa, Valencia, East India, Vietnam, and Cambodia and transpacific connections to the United States and Canada.
Allseas recently announced a series of long-term vessel time charters, including the 2,000 teu Allseas Pioneer, the company’s first vessel.
Group co-founder Darren Wright said: “The Allseas Pioneer is the first in a series of six of our own branded container vessels, with an investment of over $150m, such is the commitment we have to the new company and the customers using it to steady their supply chains.”
