The port of Liverpool has received a major deal under which it will be the last port of call for ships en route to the eastern US seaboard. CMA CGM and China Shipping have come together and will deploy four ships of between 2,500-2,700 teu apiece on a weekly service which will be launched in mid March.

Liverpool receives second transatlantic service

The terminal to be utilised at Liverpool is its Seaforth one which in recent times has seen its growth rise rapidly to 600,000 teu.

The first transatlantic service was announced a mere month ago, and will see the Mediterranean Shipping Company running a weekly service out of Liverpool to Canada.

Liverpool already handles more US and Canada trade than any other UK port and this new service confirms Liverpool as the leading gateway port for container trade with North America.
