KC Liner Agencies Brings First-Ever Direct China to Scotland East and Westbound Container Service

KC Liner Agencies, Scotland`s largest truly independent Liner Agency, announces the first-ever direct container service connecting China and Scotland east and westbound.

The maiden voyage is due to depart Ningbo, China, on 6 June 2022, arriving directly at Greenock Port, Scotland, around 10 July 2022.

Operating under our own direct charter, and complemented by an Alliance partnership with DKT Allseas, our China Xpress service, will provide Scottish importers and exporters with a direct port call eliminating the decades of frustrating transshipments and huge delays at European ports.

The China Xpress shipping solution will vastly improve logistics and supply chain resilience providing a new direct container service across Scotland and the United Kingdom.

David Milne, KC Group Shipping Managing Director, commented, "China Xpress is one of the most significant developments in the UK, and especially Scotland's shipping industry, for many years. We've analysed the marketplace and listened to our customers, and there is no doubt that the service will bring much-needed efficiencies to their supply chains."

China Xpress Service includes;

  • Six (6) x circa 1600 TEU vessels
  • Ten (10) day port rotation
  • Three (3) sailings per month
  • Ningbo and Dongguan to Liverpool and Greenock
  • Feeder network servicing Far East Asia
  • Fastest and ONLY direct container service linking China to/from Scotland
  • Independent Feeder service connecting Greenock and Liverpool both North and South Bound

The newly formed alliance and service will provide not only an unparalleled service to the United Kingdom but additionally much-needed tonnage and equipment to global supply chains. With immediate effect, we will offer;

  • 20’ Standard and 20’ High Cube Containers
  • 40’ Standard and 40’ High Cube Containers
  • 40’ Mega Cube Containers (Payload 85cbm)
  • 20’ and 40’ Reefer Containers

By taking a progressive approach to solving the supply chain challenges Scottish Importers and Exporters encounter, KC Liner Agencies will deliver a unique service offering, reduced transit times and the ONLY direct service linking China and Scotland.

David Milne continued, "I am encouraged that Scotland's industries now have a solution to ensure commerce, products and trade in and out of Scotland, have an effective and competitive way forward."
