PD Ports selected as ship agents by "K" Line

PD Ports has been appointed as ships agent in the Humber region for short sea carrier operators, “K” Line European Sea Highway Services (KESS).

The new contract started in September and includes the import and export of various car brands via Immingham and Grimsby connecting to the German ports of Emden and Cuxhaven. Exports will be destined for various European countries as well as the Far East and United States.  

Frans Calje, Chief Executive Officer of PD Ports commented: “Despite the decline in new car sales in the UK in 2017 there has been an increase in imports of more than 35% and this new contract offers KESS access to our services on the Humber that will support this growth in a highly demanding and competitive market. Our ship agency business is a 24 hour support service centred on three of the largest marine gateways in the country, the Thames, Humber and the Tees where we represent ship owners, managers and operators. This is the first time we have worked with KESS and we are delighted to be a part of this growing operation in the Humber region.”

Torsten Wendt, Managing Director of "K" Line European Sea Highway Services GmbH, said: “With the nomination of PD Ports as KESS ships agent we are taking further steps to improve our service and it underlines the importance for our business in the Humber region. Together with our new partner we will provide the best service to our customers.”
