Operating vessels within Europe requires considerable amount of expertise. The difference between Feeder and Main Liner business is the transit time. While a connection from Asia to Europe is measured in weeks, the time difference between two feeder port calls is sometimes less than a day.

For successful operation of a Feeder vessel, solutions have to be in place for:

  • Customs regulations in the different EU- and non-EU countries
  • Getting berthes on a short notice
  • Flexibility in case of last minute bookings, change of rotation..etc
  • EDI connectivity and contracts with ports and terminals
