US Gateway opens at Bristol Port


Bristol Port has welcomed a new shipping service to the USA from Royal Portbury Dock. 

Capable of carrying more than 7,000 vehicles, Theben will take British-built Jaguars, Land Rovers, Minis and heavy construction plant to the east and west coasts of the USA.

David Brown, Chief Executive Officer, at The Bristol Port Company said:

“We are the nearest major UK Port to the USA and this is the first ship of a weekly service that reflects the booming car export business at Bristol Port. Last year the Port handled nearly 200,000 vehicles for export and a 20% increase is predicted this year.”

The Theben is owned by the Scandinavian Shipping company Wallenius Wilhelmsen and is one of a new generation of ships to take advantage of the widened Panama Canal.
