Delta Shipping, a new partner for trade with Russia
23rd march 2010

Since mid-February the Cypriot company Delta Shipping Lines has been running a weekly container service between Dunkirk and St Petersburg with the following rotation: Tilbury – Dunkirk – Hamburg – St Petersburg.

Transit time between Dunkirk and St Petersburg is 5 days.

The service will allow loading of dry goods at controlled temperature. It will be at Dunkirk on Tuesday afternoons.

The service will call at Dunkirk's NFTI terminal and will serve the PLP and Neva Metal.

Delta Shipping offers 20', 40' and 45' containers as well as a palletwide 40' container for loading 30 euro pallets.

The company also accepts specialist shipper-owned containers such as tanktainers, flats and open-top containers.

Lastly, Delta Shipping has opened its service to third-party shipping companies and offers all its customers pre-routing and on-forwarding services both in France and in Russia.

Dunkirk is the only French port with direct links to St Petersburg.

The company is represented in Dunkirk by AMR (Agence Maritime Rommel).

According to Delta Shipping's General Director Antti Linteri, Dunkerque-Port was chosen because of the quality of the services offered by the port community as a whole.
