Liverpool port adds second ferry service from the Iberian peninsula

Liverpool port is celebrating the addition of a second ferry service from the Iberian peninsula to Liverpool. The new weekly service connecting Portugal to Liverpool, has been introduced following the success of the first pure RoRo service between Santander, Liverpool, and Dublin in June.

Whilst most new services take time to build market confidence, these new connections have already proved a huge success, further increasing frequency and capacity on Irish and UK services from continental Europe. Offering cargo owners and hauliers the chance to utilise longer maritime routes, switching to unaccompanied trailers to improve the overall productivity of the driver pool.

Liverpool is a key port for the Atlantic and Irish Sea trades and this new route between Iberia and Liverpool, provides both Irish and US exporters alike, with a reliable, fast and direct route for their customers, including those in northern Britain. Market uncertainty, due to COVID and Brexit, has presented a number of ongoing issues within the supply chain, affecting long distance EU haulage and driver availability. This new service will mitigate all these risks.
