CULINES Launches China-Tilbury Christmas Express


To meet the shipping demand of Christmas cargo, CULINES launched the exclusive China-Tilbury direct service, actively offering logistics solutions for e-commerce clients. M/V A Daisen is tasked with this voyage, which is planned to start on 26th October from Shanghai and call Ningbo, Yantian and then directly Tilbury. She is estimated to arrive before 25th November.

Currently, most liftings to the UK are delivered to Felixstowe, Southampton or Liverpool and transshipped by land to big markets such as London. However, some loadings are also transshipped from Antwerp into the UK, limited by capacity and port conditions.

Tilbury is only 40km from downtown London with an Amazon e-commerce warehouse nearby. CULINES’ direct calling saves time and transshipment costs for clients. Congestion and truck driver shortages in other ports are also avoided. Clients could thus enjoy better services and get prepared for the Christmas market.

This express calls only two ports before Tilbury, and it takes only 27-30 days to deliver. Without the uncertainty from transshipment, this service is more reliable in terms of on-time delivery

Tilbury is a crucial terminal for London and the UK at large. In the eastern suburb of London, on the north bank of Thames, about 40km west of London Bridge and east of Thames, plus Amazon warehouse nearby, this port is meant to be a critical spot for e-commerce.
