A feeder service from Dunkirk in France to Royal Portbury Dock, which also enables deep sea feeder connectivity to the Far East, is part of the CMA-CGM offering, operated by Containerships.

James Stangroom, Commercial Manager, said: “We are delighted to welcome an additional service, and pleased in CMA-CGM’s faith in the Port by bringing this new service to Portbury and we look forward to working with them to increase box numbers. This runs alongside Containerships long established service to and from Bilbao.”
