Geest Line returns to Portsmouth

Geest Line is moving its UK cargo handling operations from Dover to Portsmouth.

The company moved these operations to Dover two years ago due to scheduling difficulties at Portsmouth, which the port said have now been resolved.

Geest Line specialises in shipments to the Caribbean, handling a range of cargoes including machinery, containers, breakbulk and project cargo. Its return sailings from the Caribbean mainly cater for the shipment of fruit – predominantly bananas – for the UK and other European markets.

Geest Line managing director, Peter Dixon, explained: “We left Portsmouth because of scheduling difficulties when we replaced our fleet with five larger and newer ships, increasing our capacity by 40 percent.

“The port at Dover was able to accommodate us and enabled our business to continue and grow. But changes at Portsmouth mean it can now handle our larger and modified service and it makes sense to return.”
