London Calling for UASC

United Arab Shipping Company (UASC) has started services to London Gateway on the South America 2 service (SAM2).

The UASC offering is part of an existing fixed day weekly service from DP World London Gateway calling at leading ports in Brazil, Argentina and Uruguay.

The first UASC cargo arrived at DP World London Gateway on Friday April 17.

The service provides more options for food and beverage exports to the UK, with key ports on the service including Paranagua (Brazil), Buenos Aires (Argentina), Montevideo (Uruguay), Rio Grande (Brazil), Itapoa (Brazil) and Santos (Brazil). The sailing time from Santos to London Gateway is 18 days.

The level of reliability given to port and shipping line customers is world-class due to weather beating technology deployed at Britain’s newest deep-sea port. London Gateway has not had to close due to heavy winds, when other ports have, which means shippers don’t need to suffer from port closures when they choose London Gateway.

Cameron Thorpe, Port General Manager, DP World London Gateway, said:

“We are delighted UASC is now calling at DP World London Gateway on the South America service and we will be working with them to ensure the highest levels of customer service is delivered.”
