Viasea is changing its routes, providing improved capacity and more ports in its schedule. The new routes offer increased capacity, new destinations in the UK, and two weekly departures from the Netherlands.
Viasea Shipping has announced the addition of a new service between the Hutchison Ports London Thamesport and Norway, increasing the range of short sea container services available from the South East.
This two-week-long route is operated by two vessels, allowing weekly calls to all ports.
Serving two UK ports allows for increased predictability.
The south of the UK has significant volumes of imports/export to Europe. Adding this alternative port should allow us to assist UK shippers and receivers in reducing their reliance on the heavily congested Channel crossings and will allow greater predictability for deliveries. It will also be a greener route as calling at Moerdijk will reduce the distances traveled by road when looking to export to the Netherlands / Europe.
London Thamesport will be added to the route from week 4 – 2023.

Increased capacity for the Baltics and Poland
The larger vessels will allow us to offer greater overall capacity. This is especially the case for exports from the Baltics States (Klaipeda) and Poland to the UK and Norway.
Two weekly departures from The Netherlands
From the Port of Moerdijk in the Netherlands, there will be two weekly departures, with arrivals in Oslo on Mondays and Wednesdays.
The new vessel is designed with 45’ pallet-wide high-cube containers in mind. This equipment has the same capacity as standard 13.6m trailers and will allow the line to complement overland trailer services directly.
The new service also provides access to Bilbao through partners of Viasea Shipping.
