Reefer specialist Cool Carriers will bring its Coolman Central America and West Indies service to Dover Cargo Terminal from January.
The company, which has invested heavily in boosting both the palletised and container capacities of its fleet, says its decision was prompted in part by the Port’s Dover Western Docks Revival project which will create a new cargo terminal and logistics hub.
Michael Bergman, Line Manager at Cool Carriers, said: “There are various reasons behind our decision, such as Dover’s geographical location in relation to our clients’ distribution centres, as well as the massive infrastructure investment at the port, and our requirements for the efficient handling of our new vessels which will enter service in early 2020.”
Cool Carriers will predominantly ship bananas and pineapples from Costa Rica, Colombia and the Dominican Republic to Dover, where current facilities include a dedicated 180m berth, 130 reefer plug-in points, and temperature controlled storage for 7,500 pallets.
