KC Group Shipping Brings First-Ever Direct China Bangladesh to Scotland East and Westbound Container Service

5:34am 3rd August 2022

KC Group Shipping, a recently announced new member of the X2 Elite Network and Scotland`s largest truly independent Logistics provider, announces the first-ever direct container service connecting China and Scotland east and westbound.

The maiden voyage departed Ningbo, China, in mid-July 2022, arriving directly at Greenock Port, Scotland, around 20 August 2022.

Operating under our direct charter, complemented by an Alliance partnership with DKT Allseas, the 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 analyzed 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

• East/Westbound direct calls at Ningbo, Dongguan, Chittagong, Liverpool, Greenock and Rotterdam

• Feeder network servicing Far East Asia

• Fastest and ONLY direct container service linking China & Bangladesh to/from Scotland

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 Group Shipping will deliver a unique service offering, reduced transit times, and the ONLY direct service linking China Bangladesh, 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."
